One of the special memories that we brought back from our June visit to Scotland was an afternoon spent at Shepherd House Garden in the small village of Inveresk, just outside of Edinburgh. This is a small private garden that sparkles with personality. Every aspect shows the care and attention that Charles and Ann Fraser have invested over the years.
We were fortunate to have Charles walk about in the garden with us as we toured the different garden ‘rooms’ within the 17th century walls. They have about an acre over all but it is intensively gardened so that it seems even larger as I look back on my pictures. Every year they take on another project to enhance their landscape, from the stone-walled potting shed to the artistic stone bench.
If you find yourself anywhere near Shepherd House Garden you need to add it to your itinerary. Bear in mind that it is only open for limited times each week andIt would be best to check with their website directly.
