Well worth a visit. Lovely area, good views, well kept garden and grounds. Honesty box for payment which was nice to see for a change.

We had walked the Birks of Aberfeldy earlier in the day and decided to stop at the Bolfracks Gardens as it was on our way to Kenmore. It is such a lovely garden with pleasant walks and magnificent views. I like the fact that, in this day and age, the owners provide an honesty box where you made payment. We... More

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.

I was looking forward to visiting this garden as the brochure looked good. 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.
