We try to visit each summer, as it is a beautiful garden. not for the unfit though - there are a lot of hills! Once you get up them, there are some beautiful peonies and lots of lovely old-fashioned roses. There is a great pathway up at the top, with lots of old climbing roses and pears. There is also...

This is a pleasant garden set on a steep north slope. Although not particularly old it is nicely set out and is worth a short visit.

Nobody at the entrance to receive your money, no instructions, just a rusty box indicating this was where to put your money, Garden was disappointing and a bit neglected, there was supposed to be two levels of difficulty, but found the easy route very difficult, lovely views...

An old well maintained garden. Interesting name and well worth exploring. It doesn't offer the shade of other Perthshire gardens but has a great display of older garden plants. Lots of small flowered roses on ancient rootstocks.

Visited this garden, after Cluny House Gardens. Very compact but totally different although the over-riding plants appeared to be ericaceous based. A windinding garden on several levels but where easily negotiated with well made-up paths. Again not wheelchair friendly.

Well thought out design with a good variety of interesting plants. Well worth a visit but on a steep slope in large part.

Picked up a leaflet in Aberfeldy and visited based on the pictures and description. Unfortunately it is very mis-leading. I appreciate it has been difficukt weather but they look a bit neglected and moste plant names {when available} are difficult to read. I have a slight walking disability and while there are two walking levels detailed I would have appreciated... More

These are gorgeous gardens very close to Ardeonaig Hotel and the village of Kenmore. Very easy walking and wonderful variety of flowers.
