The gardens at Myres have evolved over the years but it was James Fairlie who laid out the spectacular Vatican Garden in the 1880’s. He had been the Chamberlain to three Popes at the end of the 19th Century in Rome and wanted to bring back a part of the Vatican to Fife.
There are a number of walks and avenues, enticing you down them to see where they lead. We have a guide that guests can borrow, telling you many of the roses and plants names and sometimes when they were planted.
Your beautiful home and sensational grounds were the perfect setting for our wedding day/weekend and it really felt like a dream come true. We are so grateful for everything that you and your unbelievable team did for us from the start to finish.

There are formal rose beds - smelling divine, herbaceous borders, a spectacular Peony bed and beautiful climbing roses on many of the walls. The Vatican garden is flanked with Yew ‘stalls’ filled with a mix of wonderful shrubs. There is a maze and a productive Kitchen garden beyond the huge hedge and Beech trees, which were planted in 1745. The oldest tree on the property is the Spanish Chestnut on the front lawn, which Mary Queen of Scots supposedly planted on one of her many visits to Myres - She can be seen if you look out for her carefully!
Mathew Dixon has been head gardener at Myres for 28 years and his dedication and love of the garden can be seen everywhere.View our brochure Make an enquiry
