Cowden Japanese Garden

Yesterday we had a trip out to a recently re-opened Japanese garden on the road to Sterling near to the town of Dollar, the garden was first created by Ella Christie in the early 1900’s, she was inspired by an expedition to Japan and it’s magnificent gardens. She chose a female designer, Taki Handa to create to site in the grounds of Cowden castle. The site was vandalised in the 1960’s and has been brought back to life in recent years, the renovation is on-going.

I would certainly recommend a visit, http://www.cowdengarden.com
