Local Amenities

The house has 14 acres of stunning grounds

Garden view
 

….. as well as access to Methven Wood -  an ancient oak woodland which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The gardens are typical of a Victorian country house with fine specimen trees, a walled kitchen garden, various flower and shrub beds, and sweeping, extensive lawns. There are two paddocks either side of the property with grazing horses, sheep and cattle, while the north end of the grounds provide a wonderful vista up the River Almond with cliffs and woodland on either side.

The trees and policies (an old Scots word for an amenity woodland around a house), are perhaps the finest features.

There is a magnificent beech avenue lining the entrance drive way, which was originally planted nearly 200 years ago along the ornamental east drive to the Castle. There are also specimen Douglas firs, maples, silver firs, Scots pines, Weymouth pine, larches, limes, sweet chestnuts, oaks, birches, hollies, yews and rowans.

The giant tree on the lawn to the west of the house is a Pacific silver fir (Abies magnifica). It stands at 42 metres high and 1.5 metres in diameter (one of the biggest trees of its type in the UK) which originates from the slopes of the Sierra Nevada in California and is an original introduction from around 1850.

In terms of wildlife you might see roe deer, red and grey squirrels, pheasants (including Chalky, a pet albino bird), hedgehogs, buzzards, peregrine falcon, herons, and swifts.

If you enjoy gardening, walking, or the great outdoors, this is the perfect base for you.
