Kirky Cottage is 500 yards away from Mindrum, set in the beautiful Bowmont Valley, surrounded by the border hills.

Here you’ll discover old rose favourites, violas and salvias jostling among new finds planted in the cottage style garden. New additions and planting keep Kirky Cottage constantly evolving and ensure the beautiful garden is protected from the ever-present wind.
