  • Pretty gardens but not a patch on Linn or Hill House. Also the main road is very close which intrudes on the potential for tranquillity.
  • It doesn't look massive on the map but this wonderfully crafted garden's paths weave around the wooded valley and walled garden areas so skillfully that it feels much bigger and you can easily wander for an hour or two. There is a small but well made play area. Views over the Clyde or north to the hills behind add an extra bonus.
  • Decent amount of things for kids. Tea, coffee, chocolate from vending machine, but no cafe
  • Very quiet gardens split into several areas, can see everything in about an hour, good place to relax
  • Lovely afternoon out It was so peaceful and felt as if it wewe ine the middle of nowhere,
