Brief description of site
Crarae Gardens were laid out in the early- to mid-20th century within a late-19th-century designed landscape. The gardens comprise a section of forestry, borders around the house and a woodland garden designed around the steep-sided ravine of the Crarae Burn, which is spanned by several bridges. There is a wide variety of trees and shrubs, many of them rare and unusual, growing in the shelter of conifers.
Brief history of site
Lady Campbell began to lay out the woodland garden in 1912, within a late-19th-century designed landscape.
