Inspired by a visit to Ruskin’s house and woodland garden at Brantwood. Azaleas and specimen rhododendrons are the principal plants as the acid soil within the wood makes them ideal, along with ability to withstand roe deer browsing. The rhododendrons include a wide selection of both specimen and hybrids. Azaleas are mainly Azalea pontica chosen for scent and autumn colour. Around 30 acres, Northwood is home to red squirrels, and offers spectacular views northwards over the River Tay. Also of interest are eucryphia, cercidiphyllum, tulip tree, various red acers, rowans, liquidambar, metasequoia and magnolias. Spectacular late autumn foliage!
1¾ miles south of the Tay Road Bridge off the A92, between the Forgan and Five Roads roundabouts.
