Arnprior FK8 3EY
Mark and Carol Seymour

By arrangement 1 May - 1 September

Sunday 9 June, 2pm - 5pm

In 2024, Thorntree looks forward to welcoming visitors to their garden opening on Sunday 9 June as well as by arrangement on other dates. Carol will happily walk round the garden with you or you can wander on your own. The garden continues to evolve and cotoneasters by the saltire beds have been cut back which means the four flower beds are no longer hidden behind a hedge! Also, the view past the summerhouse can be seen and the Annabelle hydrangea has popped up now that there are fewer branches above it. It is an inspiring garden to visit at any time of the year. From the garden you can see panoramic views from Ben Lomond to Doune, watching the Forth meander down the bottom of the valley.
Directions: On the A811, to Arnprior, then take the Fintry Road; Thorntree is second on the right.
