Tel: 01887 820344       E-mail:

A historic walled garden of approximately four acres with splendid views north overlooking the Tay Valley. Bolfrack's has been described as a plantsman's garden with many interesting features from early spring though to late autumn. Most of the trees and many of the shrubs are labelled, and a limited number of the plants to be found in the garden are offered for sale. The walled garden is an idyllic spot with herbaceous borders, the main Rose Garden and many sheltered corners. In the less formal wooded garden, known as the Burn Garden, visitors will find a typical spring woodland with dwarf rhododendrons, deciduous azaleas, lysichiton, meconopsis and many varieties of moisture loving primulas. Wild areas of bluebells and old daffodils carpet the woodland floor. The Burial Ground has a wide range of specimen trees. Also look out for ten gnomes dotted around the garden! These date from the 18th century and are of German origin.
