Wander around our beautiful gardens and explore the new Silver Garden Trail and Plant Hunters’ Walk. Keep an eye out for fairies on our new Fairies and Legends Trail, where you can also learn about our fascinating early history in a reconstructed Bronze Age roundhouse.

Featuring a new border design and full of exotic and delicate plants, the walled garden provides a sheltered site in which to grow and develop plants that are rarely seen growing outdoors in Scotland. Built in 1710, it’s the oldest part of the gardens and has stunning views over Brodick Bay. The walled garden also has a new centrepiece around the sundial, with sandstone paving reflecting outwards. 

Built in 1845, the Bavarian summerhouse is the only survivor of four similar structures that once graced the woodland here. It was constructed in a Bavarian style as a wedding present for Princess Marie of Baden and  holds a prominent position over the coast road and Brodick Bay.
