A Japanese Garden in Scotland!

This was the delight of our week in Scotland to be sure. We drove to Cowden nr Stirling at the end of our week in Scotland, and it was worth our early start. A smallish garden which we spent over an hour exploring and if we’d not been en route for home, we would definitely have lingered…

We came home with a lot of thoughts for the garden. There is a lot in progress for sure, but it will be a while happening. I’ll add more pics when I get the camera loaded. But maybe our impending shed can have some Japanese influences like scorching the timber dark? Gravel circles however are not practical for spaces we will walk over…

It is a really amazing garden. It was built in the 1900s and was said to be The best garden in the Western World by Professor Suzuki who worked there between 1908 and 1925. It had a major restoration in 2014.
