A late C18 walled garden with its associated bothies and gardener's cottage. It is described in the 1793 sale particulars. For further history of the estate see Piercefield House.


A very large rectangular enclosure of sandstone rubble walling about 2.3m in height rising to 3.5m on the north wall, which supports the bothies and did support the greenhouses. The wall is much overgrown with ivy but it survives complete with a number of doorways and a break for carts at the north west corner. The range of bothies along the outside of the north wall have rubble walling but no roofs. The cottage, which is at the north east corner facing south into the garden is red brick and two storeys but is now much damaged. It has a central door and two windows on each floor with an oculus above, but the roof is now missing.


The interiors of the bothies and the cottage have been destroyed.
