Arbigland House and Gardens

24 acres of gardens surrounding an Adam-style 18th house, with woodland walks, formal gardens, a lake and a beach on the Solway Firth looking across to Cumbria. The House has strong links with Robert Burns (the poet), John Paul Jones (father of the US Navy), James Craik (George Washington's physician) and John Campbell (the first Captain of HMS Victory). Visitors can book a talk about this history while touring the principal rooms of the House. There are holiday lets in the Stable Yard.

Had a great visit today and a personal tour by owner and master garden designer Wayne, enthralling! Owner John was working on the luscious lawns and Alistair gave us a tour of the estate and visitor facilities. Great to see such an awesome interesting collection of mature trees and shrubs and the changes are noticeable as the garden emerges from the cocoon of history.
