The Garden.
The designed landscape that developed around Geilston House in the late eighteenth century can be considered in four main areas - the avenue and lawns, the walled garden, the kitchen garden and the woodland walks.

Between the 1600's and 1989, Geilston was home to seven different families. The last private owner of Geilston, Miss Hendry, enjoyed gardening and as a keen amateur gardener, she complimented the appearance and development of the eighteenth century designed landscape.

The House.
Geilston House was built in the seventeenth century as a simple farmhouse. Over the next two hundred years it developed into a picturesque country villa. It is now Category A listed. Phase one of the restoration project was completed in 2006 with a complete re-slating of the roof, new leadworks and new guttering. The house is not currently open to visitors.
