Summary

In the south-western corner of Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway is home to some of the country’s most attractive gardens. The artistic highlight of our tour is undoubtedly Dumfries House, actually in Ayrshire, which Prince Charles helped to save. One of the Adam brothers’ finest achievements, the stunning interiors showcase a unique collection of Chippendale furniture, while the walled garden is one of the most exciting new garden developments in Scotland. 

We see something rather different at Broughton House – an artist’s garden at the restored former home of ‘Glasgow Boy’ EA Hornel, which shows the influence of his time in Japan and is always full of colour. 

Further highlights include Drumlanrig Castle, with its extensive gardens and  world-class collection of fine art and furniture. This was one of the first and most important Renaissance buildings in the grand manner built in Scotland. A hidden gem nestled in a bowl of rolling hills in the heart of Dumfries and Galloway, Crawick Multiverse is another interesting stop – with its unique combinations of natural features and artificial landscaping.

Our tours in July, August and September are led by local resident and expert horticulturalist Colin Crosbie.

Tour highlights:

  • Stunning interiors and a wonderful walled garden at Dumfries House
  • One of Charles Jencks’ distinctive landscapes
  • Plants from around the world in the lush surroundings of Logan Botanic Gardens
  • The tranquil pond at the heart of Glenwhan Gardens
  • The treasure trove of fine art that is Drumlanrig Castle
