thanks Aster.....built as a hunting lodge for a shipping chap so rarely used and not a lot of the usual."treasures and lovely furniture " inside. The part of the info during the tour that amazed me was that Kitty" the lady of the house" used to send her laundry all the way from London because the water in scotland was better....in the early 1900's..can you imagine.?
The blossoms were lovely Jane....some of the Magnolia trees were splendid...and daffs everywhere apparently over 200 species of them...
Cheers Muddy the gardens were really lovely....set out so well.

Beautiful setting LW .. think the West coast of Scotland benefits from the effects of the gulf stream and some gardens can grow quite exotic plants. Not something we know much about on this side of the country is it ?
