Photographs taken on a recent trip to Elgin where we stayed at Wildekrans Country House. If you stay at Wildekrans you need to set aside at least an hour to explore their award-winning garden. Featured in numerous magazines and part of the well known “Elgin Open Gardens“, its simply stunning.
Although we visited in Autumn which would not be “prime” garden visit time, we found the garden most charming and enjoyed our afternoon walkabout with the chickens letting us know we were on their turf! Beautiful garden sculptures and decorations (including a collection of whimsical sheep), a lovely pool area to enjoy, rambling rose garden, olive and pear orchard and meandering stream … you will love it and might not even want to leave!
