Situated at the edge of Westmuir, 1 mile west of Kirriemuir on the A926, the nursery sits at 500′ on the northern rim of the fertile Strathmore valley below the spectacular Angus Glens. Without doubt this is one of the finest natural beauty spots in Great Britain. We can guarantee an unlimited supply of clean fresh air and for those of you who enjoy outdoor pursuits there are a host of activities to follow.

Local arts and crafts also flourish here alongside interesting Historic buildings including J.M Barries birthplace and Glamis Castle which are both worth a visit also in the vicinity are ancient Pictish standing stones and Roman battle sites.
If you are interested in further details about the area we will be happy to send a Tourist Information Guide with your order or you can follow contacts from the Links page.
