The walled garden was acquired by Rothesay Town council in 1970,and latterly by Argyll and Bute Council, and has been developed to create a propagation ,education and show garden. Extensive bedding and fuchsia displays contain some of the best cultivars available.

A number of avaries housing a range of foreign birds species have been built to create further interest.
