Cluny House is famous for its garden, created by Bobby and Betty Masterton. When they arrived in the 1950s there were a few trees – conifers, beeches and oak, but most notably two magnificent Wellingtonias, one of them being Britain’s widest conifer, with a girth of 11 meters.

Although over 150 years old, these natives of North America are still youngsters as the trees can live for a thousand years. The Mastertons had a particular interest in Himalayan plants which thrive in the garden’s perfect conditions. Many of the seeds they grew are now large trees, such as the Tibetan Cherry, notable for its mahogany peeling bark. Perennials that flourish here include lilies (including some over 4m high) and Meconopsis (blue poppy). Since 1987 the garden has been cared for by their daughter Wendy and her husband John Mattingley. The garden can be visited as part of this walk by diverting along the minor road that follows the north bank of the Tay between Strathtay and Aberfeldy. The road carries little traffic and has delightful views all the way along.
