Description: Whitewin House was built for Baronet Henry Tate of Tate and Lyle. The house stands in one acre of formal Victorian Garden, redesigned over a five year period in the form of an English Manor House Garden which, of course, comes with its challenges, because of its coastal location. The rockeries, beautiful scalloped lawns and the plethora of statuary all complement the use of authentic Victorian bedding plants, trees and shrubs, ideally mirroring the ambience and grandeur of the house interior. In 2022, two water features were added to the garden. Home to celebrated international mezzo-soprano Linda Finnie, Whitewin House is fortunate in having a prime position in Golf Course Road, having been the first house built there, standing majestically overlooking the Firth of Clyde, Ailsa Craig, Arran and the Kintyre Peninsula.
Whitewin House was encouraged to apply for Garden of the Year in May 2022, following an invitation by a representative from More4 television.

Directions: Approaching Girvan from the north on the A77, the turning to Golf Course Road is on the right-hand-side of the road before the town centre following signs for the Golf Course. From the south on the A77 come through Girvan, turn left at the lights, then first left and follow signs for the Golf Course. Entrance to the property will be signposted. 

Other details: Teas and coffees will be served in the conservatories and the garden.
