Blairwood House


Blairwood House


Over the past couple of years the owners have changed their 18 year old, one acre garden in several ways. By re-routing part of the driveway they created space for a pond (using local stones) and a small stream. Many new flowering shrubs are used to extend seasonal interest and to provide a good backdrop for less substantial herbaceous perennials. They revamped the entire herb garden for ease of maintenance, and started a kitchen garden. The garden sits well in the surrounding countryside and provides pleasure through its plant combinations. The short walk from the garden to the river Dee is recommended.


Blairs, on the B9077, five minutes by car from Bridge of Dee, Aberdeen. Very close to Blairs Museum.
