The ongoing restoration and transformation of this ‘pocket’ estate’s 17th-century Scot’s tower house and gardens continues to evolve and delight. Within the walled garden, imaginatively clipped yew hedges enclose ‘rooms’ filled with luxuriantly planted herbaceous borders, a productive potager garden, wildflower meadows, an intricate box parterre, water features and a magical shade garden which is home to four of Scotland’s largest Griselinia littoralis specimens. In recent years planting has extended into the wider woodland policies and highlights include a new Nuttery (inspired by Sissinghurst), extensive wildflower meadows and waterside plantings surrounding an impressively landscaped pond.
