A 17th century lime washed house is the backdrop to a formal(ish) garden with many fine old trees including an ancient stand of yews. We use sculpted hedges to play with perspective. There is an ice house, vegetable garden, a mound, orchard and two large polytunnels where we grow vegetables bio-dynamically. We are establishing a nursery where plants attractive to invertebrates are grown. We plant particularly for wildlife so wildflowers and beneficial weeds are encouraged.
From Inverness head four miles north on the A9, and follow the directions for Black Isle Brewery. Park in the brewery car park and you will be given directions in the shop.
