Statement of Interest

A-Group with Cammo House, Bridge, Quadrant Walls, Boundary Walls, Rubble Bridge, Stable Block, Walled Garden and Water Tower. This is a very unusual feature in the landscape. Although the knoll may appear artificial, a characteristic that is intensified by the surrounding wall, it is believed to be a glacial feature. The surrounding wall was erected by Sir John Clerk and appears on his landscape sketch. Sir John Clerk made extensive designs for the Cammo Estate including: parterres, a walled garden, orchards, formal avenues and a Portugal garden There was also a sundial in the grounds but this is now in the possession of the National Trust for Scotland. For further information on Sir John's work at Cammo see the Cammo House list description.
