Barmagachan House

 

Barmagachan House - NEW FOR 2017

Description

This new garden surrounds an 18th century house on a rocky knoll overlooking Wigtown Bay. It is profusely planted with a large variety of alpines, perennials and shrubs, including rhododendrons. Two themes are plants from SW China and Australia e.g. meconoposis, Asian primulas, eucryphia, and hebe. Many plants have been chosen for their wildlife value. The grounds also include an orchard, wall trained fruit, soft fruit area, potager and meadow. The woodland is rich in bird life. There is a 13th century motte.
