The existing gardens originally formed part of the larger layout designed by Percy Cane for the owners of Ardencraig House. The walled garden was acquired by Rothesay Town council in 1970,and latterly by Argyll and Bute Council, and has been developed to create a propagation, education and show garden. Extensive bedding and fuchsia displays contain some of the best cultivars available.
