Orton Walled Garden

Orton House, Rothes, Moray IV32 7QE
Mrs Carola Miller
Current Openings:
Description: Orton Estate is known for its fishing on the Spey but over the last thirty years the eighteenth century family house has been restored and the private, sunken garden created. During that time the walled garden, which has, in Georgian and Victorian times been intensively cultivated, was rescued from being a Christmas tree plantation. So far we have made deep perimeter beds full of masses of roses which bloom throughout the summer, backed up by a variety of shrubs which flower from spring to autumn. The next stage is to work on a central point for the garden, so what you will see is a work in progress. This is our first garden opening.

Directions: On the B9015, three miles north of Rothes on the right and six miles south of Fochabers on the left. The main entrance is signed Orton Estate. Entrance for the garden will be signed Orton House at the small drive with tall trees and white lodge visible below you.
