Design

The present structure of the designed landscape at Bargany Gardens dates back to the early 19th century with only a few features surviving from the earlier formal landscapes. As well as grazed parkland, there is an early 20th-century woodland garden and rock garden which house displays of rhododendrons and azaleas. The early 19th-century walled garden has a small semi-circular garden at one end with interesting trees and shrubs.

History

In the mid-18th century there were tree-lined parks, avenues and a formal wilderness. An improvement plan for the Bargany Gardens and policies was made in the late 18th century by William Adam, W. Bouchart and George Robertson. The present structure of Bargany garden dates to around 1826 when Willam Sawrey Gilpin worked on the park.

In the early 20th century a woodland garden and a rock garden were created by Colonel Sir North Dalrymple-Hamilton. The house was restored in the late 20th century and the gardens are being continually maintained.
