There are rare trees throughout the grounds and the main garden is the remnant of that laid out in Victorian times. There is a pretty little raised knot garden called the Italian Garden and a lovely old Victorian conservatory. Parking is available at the house but you may prefer to park in Penpont Village and walk up the drive to Capenoch, as there are lovely bluebells and wild flowers in the oak woods on either side of the drive.
Take the A702 west from Thornhill, drive through Penpont and the entrance to the house is at the lodge on the left hand side, just at the speed restriction sign.
