More Summer Houses Articles People keen to purchase their own summer house can go on the hunt for other examples of outdoor buildings when a number of gardens open to the public in Scotland.
The annual Yellow Book has just been published, listing the addresses of private garden owners who welcome visitors for charity in aid of Scotland’s Gardens Scheme.
Writing in the Daily Telegraph, Ursula Buchan notes that in past years gardens such as ones that overlook the Firth of Clyde have gone on show, as well as gardens at Pentland Firth, which shows "what is possible in gardening on the exposed far northerly coast of the Scottish mainland".
City gardens are also listed in the book and even 12 properties in the Shetland Islands.
The opening of the 550 gardens comes as the nation marks the Snowdrop Festival, which runs until March 15th. The event will also see some of Scotland's stately homes unveil their gardens and show off their white flowers.
