Steve Smith, who has worked as our gardener and handy-person since June was recently shown a chapter from a book, which detailed the diary of the gardener at Skaill House from 1799. 

……..”To read the words of a gentleman working on the same grounds as myself, but written over 200 years ago has inspired me to record a year in the life of the garden as it is now.¬†Although the house is closed over the winter months, work still goes on in preparation for opening in April and I will do my best to show how the garden changes throughout the seasons………”

We’d love you to follow Steve’s work and photographs throughout the year!
