The Grounds

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'.
