Our View

Enormous herbaceous borders of unusual perennials, a stunning ornamental vegetable garden and a lake spanned by rose-clad wrought iron bridges are just a few of the features here, and the team work hard to ensure year-round interest. The focal point of the garden is the summer house on the lake, with the bridge and nearby willow tree creating a Japanese effect. There’s a snowdrop festival in February and colourful displays of tulips in May followed by roses in July, while the 2.5-acre Victorian walled garden always provides wonderful summer colour. The North American Prairie garden is home to hundreds of grasses and you can walk the shady woodland pathways down to the sea. There’s a gift shop and a tea room.

About The area

Discover Fife

This 20-mile wide peninsula between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Tay is an ancient kingdom, once the home of Scotland’s kings and saints. Despite its modern bridges it still seems curiously detached from the rest of the country. Travelling along Fife’s grand coastline reveals a fascinating legacy of caves, castles, and ancient fishing ports. Blend coast and countryside by following stretches of the Fife Coastal Path, or take an exhilarating trek in the Fife Regional Park.

St Andrews has a unique place in Scotland’s heritage. According to legend, the city was founded by St Regulus in the 4th century, who was carrying relics of St Andrew, patron saint of Scotland, when his ship was wrecked off the coast. Thereafter, the town grew as an important religious centre, eventually home to the largest church in Scotland, now an attractive ruin, with the powerful bishops wielding great influence over church and state. Today, St Andrews is famous for its university, the oldest in Scotland, and as a world golfing mecca. The Old Course at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club claims to have 15th century origins and to play a round on these hallowed links is many golfers’ dream.
