Stobo Gardens


Stobo Japanese Water Garden


Secluded woodland garden. While water is probably the main feature of the garden now, the layout echoes facets of a more conventional Japanese garden - stepping stones, humpback bridges, the 40 feet waterfall, azaleas and rhododendrons, acers and other specialist trees and shrubs, many of far eastern origins. Several Japanese lanterns and a tea house still remain from when the garden was created  in the early years of the last century. Recently featured in the October issue of The English Garden Magazine.


Off the B712. Follow signs for Stobo Castle then yellow signs on the drive.
