Water is a major feature of this eleven-and-a-half-acre garden with a lochan, river and many wildlife ponds. Areas of tamed wilderness provide valuable biodiversity with a wide variety of habitats for flora and fauna, including a family of swans. Many varieties of primula provide a mass of colour in the extensive bog garden and the rhododendrons and azaleas will still be in bloom. Steps from the walled garden with its Italianate ponds, waterfall, rill, fountain and sitooteries, lead up to a pleasant terrace with a small parterre. For the more energetic there are delightful woodland walks.
The garden can be found just off the A702 in the village of Dolphinton.
