I like my gardens a little wilder than this, but it does look a very attractive place to visit. Nice the way the gardens have the lovely river running through.

What a lovely place, great photos Matt. I would like to know how they manage to clip the trees so perfectly, in No 2, that are so close to the rivers edge...?

Robert Burns was a true poet. It is neat to put a view to the poem.
