Featured Garden

The Rose Garden
Queen Margaret of Scotland has recommended this lovely respite from a frolicking day.  Inspired by the War of the Roses between the Yorks and the Lancasters, this 2,800 square foot garden is a dazzling collection of White and Red roses that create a sanctuary of beauty and light.


A Highland Fling offers rowdy entertainment at its best, full of bagpipes and brute strength.  Don’t miss any of these Scottish amusements throughout the day.
