Description

Loch Lomond And Trossachs National Park Planning Authority

Large irregularly-shaped V-plan walled garden probably dating from the 18th century located to W of Leny House (see separate listing). Of early date, size and unusual plan.

The garden is built on ground rising to the S. A pair of square-plan rusticated ashlar gatepiers are located at the eastern end of the garden. Roughly central to the N wall is a bowed section, the 1st edition map shows a curved path within the garden corresponding to it. To the SW is a 19th century burial ground to the Buchanan family of Leny. Some sections of the wall have collapsed, 2005.

Materials

Random rubble walls with ashlar copes.

Outbuilding

Small rectangular plan piend-roofed outbuilding adjacent to the NE corner of the garden, the building appears on the 1st edition map.
