The site is about 400 metres above sea level, which is high for a cultivated garden. The surrounding landscape is open moorland with sheep grazing. The garden is largely enclosed by dense planting, but the various walks allow views through the trees into the surrounding countryside. Historic Scotland in its register of "Gardens and designed landscapes" describes the garden as "An outstanding example of a virtually unaltered, small, 18th century garden layout connected with James Stirling, the developer of the profitable Leadhills mining enterprise, and possibly William Adam." Say goodbye to spring walking among what must be some of the last daffodils of the year.
On Main Street, Leadhills (B797) six miles from the M74 Junction 13 (Abington). Gate is in Station Road.
