“Enjoyable”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

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.

“Disappointing visit”
Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

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 but felt let down by the unkempt look.

“Intriguing”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

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.

“Another non-wheelchair friendly garden”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Visited this garden, after Cluny House Gardens. Very compact but totally different although the over-riding plants appeared to be ericaceous based. A windinding garden on several levels but where easily negotiated with well made-up paths. Again not wheelchair friendly.

Pleasant visit, well sign posted and plenty of plants and even fruits to see, with great views and a friendly owner with her dogs.
