About the garden

Home to a historic mansion, surrounded by glorious grounds, and renowned 10-acre gardens that offer breathtaking views across the Firth of Clyde, this is one of Renfrewshire’s most prestigious visitor attractions.

Witness a spectacular display of Snowdrops in the woodland during winter, then watch as they are replaced by a beautiful covering of Bluebells and glowing Daffodils during spring. Feast your eyes on gorgeous Peonies in the walled garden, before unwinding with delicious refreshments from the Garden Café. And don’t forget the ‘smelly’ garden - created with the sight-impaired in mind - or the 70-metre herbaceous border, which provides captivating colour through to autumn. If something catches your eye, you can purchase seasonal plants from the gift shop.

Visitors can wander along one of the many trails through the 140-acre woodland, featuring trees thought to be over 400 years old, and head to the incredible falconry centre. Or, why not let the kids’ imaginations run wild on the custom-built pirate ship?

Lovely grounds. Lots of walks and waterfalls. Kids playground looked a lot of fun but a bit too old for it now!

Arrived and was surprised that you had to pay £5 per adult, decided to pay and enter and so glad I did. Such a beautiful park with lots to explore and do, the gardens are great and there are lots of stuff for the kids to do. Worth a look even if it does cost.
