A lovely corner in Ardross Gardens

This is part of the gardens of Ardross Castle.

An important planned 19th century estate landscape, central to the character of the Averon valley. At the core of the landscape are early 20th century formal gardens, including an Edwardian garden designed by Edward White, and work by Pulham &Sons and the Bromsgrove Guild of Applied Arts.

Ardross Castle lies 8km (5 miles) north-west of Alness, in the Averon valley.

It is built in Scottish Baronial style and incorporates an earlier house. It was designed by Alexander Ross for Alexander Matheson in 1880-81 and built of Tarradale Red Sandstone.
