Monkwood (also known as Nether Monkwood, Paterson)4031

Maybole, Scotland

Brief Description

Monkwood is situated on a bend of the River Doon and is approached by a sweeping drive.

History

In the mid-17th century there was a substantial house with impaled park and planting. The designed landscape may have declined during the 18th century but there was a garden there in the early-19th century. The property was tenanted shortly after this to James Smith, a renowned botanist, who collected plants and developed the garden. Maps of this period show a sweeping drive through plantations and fields and a walled garden.
