When Caroline and Kevin purchased The Quoy of Houton in 2006 it was a sad, derelict shadow of its former self. All that remained of the original garden were the tumbling stone walls, the water pump and a pampas grass.
Today we are part of the Scottish National Garden Scheme and are proud to be the home of the Orkney Garden Trail, which runs annually in June and July (on the last two Sundays in June and the first two Sundays in July), raising money for our charity Friends of the Neuro Ward (ARI).
Our garden has featured in BBC2’s Beechgrove Garden and will be featuring in 2016 in both Coast Magazine and Scottish Field.
If you want to see the garden, please contact us. We will be delighted to welcome you and a donation to our charity.
