Garden

Enjoy a stroll round our large garden with its open lawns, mature trees, woodland glade, vegetable and fruit patch . . or just sit and take in the sight, scents, sounds and peace.

Relax in the summerhouse, a comfortable spot and an excellent viewpoint for watching or photographing the birds and wildlife as they visit the pond.

A haven for wildlife, our one and a half acre garden is home to hundreds of wild birds - pheasants, partridges, woodpeckers, and ducks can all be seen feasting here. Red squirrels and hedgehogs visit us regularly too.....as does an otter!

Our free-range hens roam the garden, great for the garden and for incredibly delicious eggs for your breakfast!

There is something to see all year round e.g. as well as formal planting areas we have marvellous displays of bulbs in spring and wild fungi from late summer.

As really enthusiastic (if a little unorthodox!) amateur gardeners we have developed The Dulaig garden from what was virtually grass parkland to what you see today. We have been delighted to be part of the Abenethy and the Stathspey Open Gardens events and on a day in July we open our garden to the public for charity - it is great fun, and very busy!

We are honoured that our garden at The Dulaig is listed on Discover Scottish Gardens, a website of beautiful gardens and garden nurseries to visit in Scotland. 

We care about the environment too - view our Green Policy
