Overview
More
A well stocked garden with many architectural features, including a sunken Victorian Fernery (1875) and large stable's ruin all located in the grounds of a baronial style house from 1844. A plant hunter trail, many water features and Britain's oldest exotic fern (more than 1000 years) add interest to this distinctly old fashioned and rather magical experience. Open from 10am to 5pm 1st April to 30th October.

Just go - the gardens are beautiful,and the Victorian fernery is wonderful.These are gardens whose owners are passionate gardeners.They rely on the donations made by visitors to help meet the costs of keeping the gardens.If you like gardens then you won't be disappointedl.

Well worth the £5.00 entry fee. Owned by a lovely couple (and dog) who have been carefully restoring the gardens over the last 3 years. The plants tumble over each other, and over tiny hidden walkways and paths. So much research has been done, and...More

We walked from Rothesay to Ascog Hall to visit the Fernery and gardens and it was probably the highlight of our trip. Greeted by the friendly owner and his dog upon arrival, the sunken fernery is absolutely stunning and we spent a couple of hours...More

We can only reiterate dont miss this amazing and beautiful unusual garden. We regret that we don't live on Bute to allow us to visit the fernery and garden regularly.
