Wander at will among the majestic trees in The Grove, some of which began life in Kew Gardens, London, way back in the 1860’s. In fact, the garden pre-dates the manor house by around 40 years. Not all are exotic foreign blooms though. Witness the impressive Bunya-pine lined Avenue which welcomes all visitors to come sample the many delights to be discovered around every corner ……….. Moreton Bay Figs, Chinese Mourning Trees , Baobabs, Himalayan Cedars and Lemon-scented Gums to name but a few. At every turn there is something for the inquisitive garden enthusiast or casual onlooker.
The Outbuildings comprise a Gardener's Cottage, original stables, the Coach House (now offered as accommodation) and various buildings that support the Estate. If the weather is nice, guests can enjoy a game of tennis or outdoor chess. A walk in the garden is often accompanied by one of the friendly dogs that are Blair Athol's 'tour guides'.
