Self-guided trail

There are lovely walks through the woodlands up to the top of the Tarvit Hill, from where you can see as far as the Perthshire hills on a clear day.

We’re developing parts of the gardens into a plant finder’s garden, which reflects the collecting ethos of the Sharp family. Follow the special trail to discover many fascinating and unusual plants along the borders in the north garden.

  • There’s a front door ramp into the house where visitors can access the ground floor, toilets, tearoom and shop.
  • There are stairs leading to the top floors, with no disabled access.
  • From the outside, there are steep stairs leading down to the shop and tearoom; however, access to these rooms can be gained through the front entry of the house.
  • A wheelchair is available.
  • There are gravel paths throughout the grounds.
