The Laird’s Garden is definitely a place to take a seat, relax and admire the surrounding activities. We recommend the benches facing the Glasshouse to take in the full garden splendour and the Glasshouse. Look right toward what remains of the Royal Palace. If you believe local folklore the furthest window on the top left floor is the room where Charles the First was born.
Originally the garden to Pittencrieff House, the Laird’s Garden now holds flowers, herbs and is constantly populated with insects, bees, birds and visitors.
Find the lavender to run your hands through it and enjoy the calming tones of its scent.
Beside the House, at the entrance to this area you’ll find one of the 10 Rubbing Plaques throughout the park. Can you make out what insect this is? It has a bee on it, we found this very informative website about how to identify our bees at Bumble Bee Conservation.
Learn more in the PDF on Glasshouse and Gardens. In particular the leaflet shares what happens in all the gardening areas throughout the seasons.
