The Garden

Visitors can explore the Walled Garden using the wide gravel paths and walking on broad lawns to enjoy a garden full of plants both familiar and unusual.

At the north end of the walled garden is the range of 19th century glasshouses. These are used for growing peaches, nectarines, grapes and exotic looking flowering plants.

Near the entrance is an amazing Maze.

The Woodland Garden has paths that meander through established woods with azaleas and rhododendrons. There are beautiful views across two fishing lochs.


Dunskey is situated on the coast in South West Scotland, overlooking the Irish Channel. The Estate is less than two miles from beautiful beaches and the unspoiled fishing village of Portpatrick. Located in the Gulf Stream, Dunskey is ideally situated for walking, touring, bird-watching and golf.
