the best woodland garden in Scotland?
Jun 2021
We visited this by appointment. It could not have been easier to arrange - it took one simple phone call to 01644 440250. We have been before and think it is a magical place. The garden is sheltered by huge mature trees. Most of it is an informal woodland garden, with large numbers of mature rhododendrons and azaleas and several ponds edged with irises or primulas. The walled garden is a complete contrast, with a formal layout and some striking sculpture. It was a blaze of colour with beautiful vistas of trees and shrubs set off in many cases by elegant structures, and the scent of yellow azalea was everywhere. And we had it more or less to ourselves, apart from a pleasant chat with a gardener.

Beautiful gardens and woodland walks
May 2021
The garden is only open 1 day per year. The gardens are beautiful and the woodland walks are lovely. There are nice lochs, the colours were stunning as we made our way round the garden.
It was worth the journey to go and visit the gardens.

Most enjoyable walk around garden when most rhododendrons were in flower with various surprise features including bridges and temples and a Loch at the top of the garden. An impressive collection of trees.

Stunningly beautiful garden estate
Apr 2017 • Couples
Following a listing in the Scottish open Gardens brochure The listing misprint had the gardens open april to June . We found when we visited it is only open one day a year in May with pre arranged bookings for other times . We were met by the Estate manager who could not be more helpful with a map and the owner Alistair Ingel welcomed us to the garden .We were to be the first visitors this year . The paths water features and follies are stunning .This is a must visit location in the area . Corsock Loch is at the top end of the estate feeding the water features . You will not be disappointed .There is a £5 per head charge going to a local charity

A peaceful place
May 2016 • Family
This is a place to stroll around and soak up the detail. The gardens are both formal and informal by design. Much of the planting is of a good age, but the owners are not affraid to create new planting schemes and embrace new technology. The gardens are only open to the public for a limited period of the year, so check before traveling.

Beautiful Gardens and walks
Jun 2016 • Friends
This is a really worthwhile garden to visit if you can. The pond walk is lovely albeit we came when the azaleas and rhododendrons were at their best. The stream that runs through the garden is fed from a large lake (over 20 acres) which is reached by a pretty stone bridge. The walled garden has a beautiful water feature and pillared shelter and here we met one of the gardeners who has worked here for about 25 years and is a charming knowledgeable man.
