The natural beauty of these informal gardens and grounds complements the intimate nature of the house. You can enjoy the white-and-grey Cupid’s garden and walled garden with its herbaceous border, pond and tree-studded lawns, then lose yourself in Scotland’s largest hedge maze. The extensive landscaped grounds offer woodland and riverside walks with majestic trees and a rich diversity of wildlife, including otters and stoats.
