Description: If you are visiting the Clyde Valley please take a short detour to visit this garden that sits on the Nemphlar Spur of the Clyde Walkway, less than two miles outside Lanark. There are many beautiful walks in this vicinity and you will be welcome to take a rest or bring a picnic to this green haven. Ian and Anne Sinclair have been developing the garden for over twenty years and, as Ian is an experienced beekeeper, the garden has evolved to attract wildlife and pollinating insects. The general planting consists of a wide variety of trees, bushes, spring bulbs and mixed borders. The wildlife garden also offers mown paths through grassed areas plus features such as a putting green, a summer-house, beetle banks and a pond. This delightful one-acre garden has always something of interest from springtime until autumn.

Directions: Leave the A73 at Cartland Bridge (Lanark to Carluke Road) or the A72 (Clyde Valley Road) at Crossford. Both routes are well signposted. The garden is on the Nemphlar spur of the Clyde Walkway, just off the West Nemphlar Road on Ladywell Lane.

Other details: Gardening and walking groups are welcome by arrangement. Refreshments are available for an additional donation. There will be a season ticket available for £20, which allows five visits and you can bring a friend at no extra charge. In addition, the garden owners are offering the opportunity for small groups to have photographs taken for family birthdays or celebrations with the garden setting as a backdrop. Please contact the owners directly to arrange in advance.
