The Walled Garden
We have been working hard to restore the gardens at Blair, including the five-acre Walled Garden. We removed 600 overgrown Christmas trees, the ground was levelled and reseeded, planted 45 Scottish apple trees, 15 Conference pears, and 10 cordons of plums, all of which are growing well. Deer fencing has been erected along the line of the fourth wall (which was always missing as it allows the burn to take the frost away) and planted with 700 hundred hornbeams to form a new hedge and to keep the deer out.
Exclusive Use – bespoke luxury accommodation for small groups and staycations.Blair is a beautifully refurbished castle, which is occasionally available for clients who wish to stay in luxurious comfort and have excellent service, whilst enjoying their own privacy.
