Synopsis
Kinross House sits on a sandy peninsula with easterly views over Loch Leven towards the castle where Mary Queen of Scots was incarcerated in 1567. Designed by William Bruce in the late 17th-century Kinross was the first Palladian, Neo-Classical house built in Scotland. Bruce also designed the walled garden with two formal parterres that linked the house to the loch. Current owner, Donald Fothergill, who purchased the house in 2011 immediately set about restoring the gardens. The symmetrical layout of box hedge parterres and striking, yew topiary shapes was complimented by the naturalistic planting schemes created by Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf at Scampston Hall in Yorkshire. Drifts of soft, muted perennials in a palate of muted colours chosen to blend with the Scottish countryside, contrasts with a wide range of grasses chosen for year-round interest.
