Cleghorn Estate has been the home of the Lockharts since the beginning of the 15th century. The gardens were previously the site of a tower, a castle and a house, all of which have been and gone with the latter being demolished in 1957 following years of neglect, vandalism and the unwanted attentions of woodworm and damp.

The Eliott Lockhart family moved back to the estate in the 1970s and have worked tirelessly to reinvigorate the Old Garden to something close to its former glory, albeit without an army of gardeners.

Cleghorn House and Garden early 20th Century

Ancient yew trees, towering beech, oak, lime and even a pair of giant redwoods, as well as rhododendrons and herbaceous perennials border the beautiful tiered lawns that provide a blank canvas on which to design your event. 

Richard and Nicky, their son Alex, his wife Lauren and their family would like to welcome you to the space they call home and support you in creating memories that you will cherish forever.

We offer exclusive hire of the Old Garden for small, intimate events and also have an off-grid cabin, bell tent and camping pitches from which to explore this beautiful corner of Scotland and beyond.
