Spent a very interesting afternoon here in late May, and were delighted to visit again today to see the gardens in full bloom. A very eclectic collection and a great way to pass some time.

In general I wonder why reviews on something that was not actually visited or used by the reviewer are allowed to be published. Anyway, this specific "virtual review" is confused on many issues. 1) There are only a handful of gardens run by the RHS...More

Ascog Hall Fernery, just on the outside of Rothesay is something of a hidden gem. Tucked away on the outskirts of Rothesay, the Victorian glasshouse dedicated to ferns and the surrounding gardens are managed and run by the owners (a couple) on their own without...More
