This enormous rhododendron is the largest of over 120 different varieties in this garden.
We don’t know the variety of this rhododendron but it is by far the largest in the garden and it flowers very reliably too. Sometimes it is absolutely covered in pink flowers so that it is hard to see any of its leaves. We’ve seen it from the air, having taken off in a plane from Aberdeen airport, it is so massively pink!
After flowering the petals fall so thickly that the ground is entirely covered.
The earliest rhododendron here sometimes flowers before Christmas and the latest in August – so for well over half the year at least one of them is in flower.

Some kind words from our previous guests…
“We can’t thank you enough or begin to relate our thanks and appreciation for sharing your beautiful home. Never could we have imagined that our own fairy tale wedding could be this magical, and you both have been key to creating this for us. Our memories will last a life-time and forever we will hold a very dear place in our hearts for Kincardine and the gracious hosts who made our dreams come true. Thank you so very much.” Sept. 2017
