Situated four miles south of Dundee, this one-acre Edwardian landscaped garden has panoramic views over the River Tay. Set on a hill, a series of paths meander around ponds and a small stream, rockeries featuring hellebores and low-level planting, a curved lawn and larger borders. Original woodland paths lead to a granite grotto with waterfall pool. At the rear of the house the vegetable garden features raised beds made from granite sets. Rhododendrons have recently been removed to create more space for seating and flower beds. The garden is colourful throughout the summer, with many architectural plants accentuating the clever hard landscape design.
