One of my favorite gardens in the UK, this 17th century Scots tower house and grounds just outside Crail, have been diligently restored over the last 20 years. The delightful 1.5 acre walled garden is a series of charming individual rooms, which include a wildlife meadow, productive potager, intricate formal parterre, magical Griselinia garden and recently planted late-season perennial borders. There is a fabulous midsummer herbaceous border and two award-winning Georgian-style garden pavilions. Katherine Taylor, the head gardener is as delightful as her gardens, and is brilliant at responding to emails and asking questions when visiting. Her very friendly dog is also great fun. The family requests a donation of £4.50 a person which they give to charity.
