Kirkcudbright Gardens Open Their Gates in Aid of Marie Curie

Two beautiful gardens near Kirkcudbright are opening their gates to the general public on Sunday 2 July 2017 in aid of Marie Curie. The first property is Glenlivet with the Limes and is located on Tongland Road. The second is the home of Adele, a friend of the local Marie Curie Fundraising Group, located at 23 High Street. These gardens are extremely well-maintained, and have benefited from the recent sunny spell. Local gardeners and keen horticulturalists will thoroughly enjoy the array of flowers, shrubs and trees.


Glenlivet with the Limes is half an acre on the edge of Kirkcudbright. It has been developed by Mr & Mrs Blackadder over a period of 9 years. The colour and variety found in this garden is spectacular, as well as two ponds connected by a rill, with fountains at both ends. The garden overlooks the picturesque River Dee.


The Marie Curie Kirkcudbright Fundraising Group organises local collections, supports fundraising efforts and the members are all-round wonderful ambassadors for Marie Curie in Scotland.


Marie Curie offers care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their families. Last year, we cared for over 8,000 people in Scotland and our nurses operate in 31 out of 32 local Scottish authorities.  Marie Curie have 28 nurses in Dumfries & Galloway who offers hands-on care and emotional support to people in their own homes, typically through the night from 10pm-7am.


Glenlivet with the Limes and Adele’s Garden are open on Sunday 2 July from 1pm-5pm. Admission for both gardens is £4. Tea, coffee and cakes are available at Glenlivet.
