    Ascog Fernery and Garden Information

    Ascog Fernery and garden is part of Ascog Hall.

    Ascog Hall is renown for the Victorian fernery and most beautiful, fairytale gardens on the Isle of Bute. This is a wonderful spot to visit if you’re in Edinburgh or Glasgow as it’s not too far from either.

    The gardens here date back to 1870 and were replanted over the last two decades to feature some of the original pathways found after clearing. There is a wide selection of perennials and shrubs as well a scented rose garden and other surprises to enjoy like the famous ‘fernery’ that was uncovered as the owners cleared away the jungle like overgrowth.

    The fernery housed exotic sub tropical ferns – or the remains thereof – and it took a long dialogue with Hostoric Scotlnd who then awarded a grant to the restoration of the roof and restocking slowly took place under the advice of The Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh. It opened to the public in 1997.

    The house is open daily from Easter to October.
