Arbigland House Gardens to Open for Scotland’s Open Gardens Scheme

Arbigland House, a stunning Georgian mansion located in Kirkbean, is proud to announce that its gardens will be open to the public as part of Scotland’s Open Gardens scheme. The gardens will be open on Sunday, May 14th, from 2pm to 5pm, and all are welcome to attend.

Entry to the gardens will be by donation, with a minimum donation of £5 for adults and free entry for children. All funds raised will be donated to Absolute Classics, a local charity that brings classical musicians from all over the world to perform and educate in Dumfries and Galloway, and this year’s supported Open Garden Scheme’s charities.

“We’re delighted to be taking part in Scotland’s Open Gardens scheme,” said the owners of Arbigland House. “Our gardens are truly beautiful, and we’re thrilled to be able to share them with the public. We’re also pleased to be supporting such a wonderful charity as Absolute Classics, which does so much to promote classical music in our community.”

The gardens at Arbigland House are renowned for their beauty and have been carefully designed to create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Visitors can expect to see a wide variety of flowers, plants, and trees, as well as a number of features such as a Sunken Garden with roses and a pavilion built by Italian Prisoners of War; a Well Head Garden with unusual plants and trees; a substantial Lake with an Island and a Japanese Garden with a variety of Acers and Cherries.

“We’re expecting a great turnout for the event,” said the owners. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for people to enjoy the beauty of our gardens while also supporting a great cause. We hope to see as many people as possible on the 14th of May.”

Tours of the principal rooms inside the House are available for £3 per adult, which can be booked upon arrival. These tours offer a unique opportunity to learn about the historic characters associated with the House, view some of the paintings, and gain insight into its rich history. If you’re interested in exploring the House and discovering its hidden treasures, these tours are not to be missed.

Teas are available at the neighbouring John Paul Jones Museum.
