Rossie House

 

Rossie House

Description

This romantic garden has been establishing itself since 1657. It is a magical mystery tour of endless paths meandering under magnificent trees, unusual shrubs with a plethora of woodland bulbs and plants at your feet. Lift the branches of a Hamamelis mollis to find yourself by the pond in an oasis of scultured beauty. Look up 100 feet to the top of the Abies alba and climb the grass path to the sunken garden and the witches’ hut. From snowdrops to hellebores then trillium and bluebells, flowering shrubs, roses and an abundance of water loving plants, this garden’s interest goes on through to the magnificent autumn colours. In summer there are more formal gardens close to the house. Sculptures by David Annand and Nigel Ross. Look out for the 10 foot tea pot and the yew table ready for the Mad Hatters’ tea party!
