I visited here with two others. We expecting our visit to take about an hour. But we found so much of interest we stayed longer. There is a tearoom and a shop and toilets on site also.

May have been better earlier in season. Large house garden. Staff friendly. Visited as number three on TA of things to do in Perth - hmm. Only £1 less than Scone Palace for the garden there. Not worth £6.50 entry p.p. Park in carpark, short...More

We viewed these gardens last month, and were over whelmed at the amount of plants for such a limited area.. such a treat .. and the don’t miss out on the tea and scones they were delicious..

Easy access from a busy main but watch watch out for the signs. Although not the size and expanse of other NTS gardens we would still recommend a visit. At the correct time of year Menonopsis poppies are their speciality. Lovely plants, plant sales, gift...More

Hello, when we visited we had to leave our dog in the car (in the shade) but maybe it would be worth asking at the office (just inside the gate). I think dogs should be allowed - they are much better behaved than some... More
