I visited the gardens at the House of Dun, near Montrose in Angus, in the early evening in mid September. It was after closing time for the house, but I was happy to enjoy the evening sunshine in the garden, which is open until dusk.
As I am a member of the National Trust of Scotland, I was exempt the £3 parking charge. There’s no charge for entry to the garden.
I spent most of my time at the House of Dun in the walled garden.
I sat on a bench where it was sheltered from the wind,
There were still plenty of flowers in bloom.
There was a crown shaped hedge in the centre of the Walled Garden.
I then spent a few minutes at the front of House of Dun, admiring the circular hedge and the countryside views.
I could make out the Montrose Basin in the distance. There is a path down to the basin, but I didn’t have the time or energy for that.
I really enjoyed my evening visit to the garden at House of Dun. My only quibble was that the toilets were closed. In my opinion, they should be open until dusk too.
