Earlier 19th century. Irregular-plan, 5-sided walled garden (approximately 3,000m?). Tall, coped walls (swept in part) with harl-pointed, tooled cream sandstone rubble to outer elevations; part coursed and tooled cream sandstone, part tooled cream sandstone rubble to inner linings (red brick lining to E wall). Boarded timber doors. Lean-to conservatory set in NE corner with part glazed, part corrugated-iron roof. Lean-to former potting shed (?) adjoining outer elevation to E. Separate single storey, rectangular-plan, brick-built ancillary structure to NE.
Now privately owned, this large, unusually-shaped walled garden was originally part of the Ninewells estate - the house itself, once occupied by David Hume, was replaced by a design by William Burn, 1839-41, and demolished in 1964. The N and S gate lodges are now separately owned. Currently used for growing Christmas tress, little remains of the garden's original layout (as depicted on the 1862 OS map). Plot for sale 1998. See separate list entry for Ninewells Dovecot.
