The Garden

Discover the spacious lawned gardens surrounding the house, in a beautiful secluded spot between the sea and the Loch.

Skaill House is surrounded by pretty sunken and terraced gardens which create a series of grass platforms and secluded sheltered spaces. A walled kitchen garden is positioned on the North side of the house, and an 18th Century dovecot positioned at the southeast corner of the gardens. A sunny and sheltered courtyard can be explored at the centre of the complex.

As the house evolved and extended the gardens were elaborated, with much of the present layout having been modified in the 1950s.
