Dunollie has never had formal gardens - instead a certain taming of the surrounding native woodland.

This was always known to the family as "The Shrubbery".

Planting took place in the 1850's to 1870's and a pond was built in the 1950's.

The finest tree is a Wellingtonia, these came to the UK in 1855 when they became popular as 'status' trees in the ground of estate owners.

In Spring, there are successive drifts of snowdrops, then daffodils followed by native bluebells.

Throughout the summer season, red squirrels, deer, rabbits and weasels may also be sighted roaming the gardens.
