Normal topicSummer outing is Tuesday 11th June 2019

Our summer coach outing this year will take us to Scone Palace, crowning place of Scottish royalty, on Tuesday 11th June 2019.

There will be an option to view the state rooms and art collections as well as to enjoy the extensive grounds with their ancient trees, the intricate maze based on an heraldic design and a recently restored kitchen garden. The botanist, David Douglas was born in Scone in 1799 and the original Douglas fir named after him is still in the grounds.

Later we will head back south for lunch and a private view of Dowhill Garden near Kelty. This is a country garden of tranquil ponds lushly planted around with shrubs and perennials including many primulas and blue poppies. It has been a labour of love for its owners since the 1980s and is praised in Scotland for Gardeners as a garden full of interest making good use of the landscape in which it is set.

Please email Edythe Murie (gardens@grangeassociation.com) if you are interested in the outing. You will be sent an application form with more details of the trip.
