The late 18th century mansion set in beautiful parkland, flanked by wooded hills, nestling in a bend of the River Leader. A romantic and beautiful garden open in the summer to the public.

Carolside garden has been cultivated for over 200 years. Today it is best known for its soft and delicate herbaceous planting, striking Delphinium beds and subtle colour schemes, its design of rooms with a Secret garden, Winter garden and Herb garden backed in espaliered pear trees and yellow and white roses. Sweeping lawns lead to an oval walled garden where an Historical Collection of ancient roses is housed including a National Collection of pre-1900 Gallica roses. Kenneth Cox in his book "Scotland for Gardeners" describes Carolside  as "one of Scotland's finest private gardens”.
