Description
Like their two previous centres, Colin and Mandy chose a fabulous site to build their next garden centre. Located out in the country, but only a small 5 minute drive from Mearns Cross and a 7 minute drive from East Kilbride, Caulders Braidbar provides the peace and tranquility of the open countryside however has the convenience of being close to Glasgow and easily accessable. Caulders Braidbar follows in the same ethos of both Mugdock & Kirkintilloch and has its foundations as supplying great plants and garden products. Together with fabulous catering offering great food. The views from The Garden House Restaurant at Braidbar look spectacularly over Glasgow, onto the Campsies and beyond. The gift shop at Braidbar is placed with great and unusual gift ideas and the garden centre is always stocked with a fantastic range of plants. As you wander through the plant sales area you will notice that the garden centre has been built around the historic Gowkstone. This stone is thought to date back to the iron ages, the name comes from the Scotts word Gowk which means cuckcoo. The Gowkstone was a meeting place for the covenants in the 1600's and later was thought to be a special place with special powers - we still believe it is a special place!!!
