I didn't go into the house so cannot comment on that, however the garden is just simply beautiful. The garden is divided into different sections thanks to low hedges and gravel paths. There are seats to take a little break, perfect for a day like ours where the sun was out. There were birds chirping and the buzz of the bees enjoying the spring flowers. While the garden is free to enter there is a donation box, worth giving something if you can.

Amazing property. So many contrasts as you walk through the rooms. The garden is amazing with a great view at the bottom of it. Quite a few steps in the house and a few in the garden. Also a great village for a walk around. We managed here and the garden at Threave on the same day.

Amazing place, the house, studio, collection and garden. We met Izzy the garden cat who called out to us. She was pleased to have visitors. Wonderful visit.

Well worth a visit. Set out over 3 floors the home of 'Glasgow Boy' Edward Atkinson Hornel. He left the house and contents to the town so everything is the house is original. When we visited there was an artist at work in the studio. I was fascinated by the floor in there there are scratches in the flooring where Hornel cut his canvas. Lots of souvenirs of his visits to Japan and a dedicated area to Robert Burns as Hornel was a collector of his works. I enjoyed my visit immensely and intend to return next year in summer to include the garden as it was closed for winter.
