Guests are welcome to take a stroll around our garden, a peaceful haven alive with birdsong and buzzing bees. You'll see the garden when eating your breakfast but, if it's dry and warm, feel free to sit outside and make the most of it. The garden changes a lot throughout the year but from spring to autumn there is always something of interest. Home Farm attracts a large variety of birds, depending on the season: goldcrests, blue tits, tree sparrows, chaffinches, greenfinches, goldfinches, siskins, tits, great tits, coal tits, long-tailed tits, blackbirds, thrushes, redwing, fieldfare, robins, dunnocks, wrens, jackdaws; rooks; hooded crows; the list goes on, and we get the occasional sparrowhawk hunting for his dinner. The nearby woods contain red squirrel, and both red kites and buzzards can be seen soaring over the garden. Throughout the summer, swallows, swifts and martins can be seen overhead and often drink from our pond.
Pots of flowers are used in the garden to give splashes of colour throughout the year. We garden with wildlife in mind, we compost as much waste as possible, plant native trees as well as more exotic ones and make sure that our plants are good for bees, bumblebees, butterflies and hover flies. We have several nest boxes and log piles where insects can hide.
Our garden pond acts as a magnet for all kinds of wildlife along with many birds visiting to both bath and drink. The pond margins provide a home for frogs, newts and toads, whilst the warmer summer days attract both damsel and dragonflies.
The garden enjoys open views to the hills of the west and our nearest “Munroe” Ben Wyvis, ample seating encourages you to linger.
