Backhouse Rossie Estate

Fife’s Backhouse Rossie Estate is an RHS partner garden and for good reason. Just seeing the rare collection of delicate daffodils housed here, (known as the narcissus Backhouse cultivars) is worth a visit alone, but visitors are also dazzled by the magnificent scented rose archway, said to be the longest in Scotland.
A garden for all the seasons, the summer months see herbaceous borders and colourful perennials vie for attention while the towering Champion Trees and woodland walk offer up an enticing pallet of Autumnal colours. Within the carefully restored walled garden, you’ll also find a medieval-style grass labyrinth decorated with alliums, the serene waters of a formal pond and lovingly renovated orchards. The Garden Café serves up seasonal grub grown on-site, which can be washed down with the estate’s freshly-pressed apple juice. And visitors looking for a floral momento should swing by the Backhouse Shop, which sells fresh flowers from the gardens and more.
Open from 1st April to 30th September on Wednesday to Sunday at 10am-4pm
