Historic walled garden at Netherbyres opens to the public


The unique elliptical walled garden at Netherbyres, Eyemouth, is open to the public on Sunday, July 5, from 2pm until 5.30pm as part of Scotland’s Garden Scheme.

Designed by the famous Engineer William Crow in the middle of the 18th century, it is now one of the most beautiful gardens in the Scottish Borders.

Colonel Simon Furness, owner of the garden, said: “I love this garden and enjoy sharing it with as many people as possible, especially for a good cause.”

The admission price is £4, £3 for concessions, and under 12s are free. There will be a plant stall and light refreshments.

A proportion of the takings will go to support Gunsgreen House Trust.

Tony Bolton, manager of Gunsgreen House said: “We welcome the generous support we get from Colonel Furness and we would encourage people who love gardens to come to Netherbyres on Sunday.”
