Trees

Kelburn is famous for its many unusual trees and the 1000 Year Old Yews and the Weeping Larch have been recently chosen by the Forestry Commission as two of the 100 most important 'heritage' trees in Scotland.

 

The Weeping Larch

One of Scotland's
100 Heritage Trees

The most remarkable of all trees at Kelburn is the Weeping Larch, which spreads over about a quarter of an acre between the tennis court and the Plaisance.

This unique mutant is thought to be 180 years old and is like no other. Its branches grow out in all directions and those that touch the ground seem to regenerate themselves, travelling sometimes upwards again and sometimes along the ground like a snake. Some of the branches have fused into other branches and, unless closely inspected, it is difficult to believe that this great monster is in fact all one tree.

 

 

The 1000 Year Old Yews

A Pair of Scotland's
100 Heritage Trees

In the garden are two magnificent yew trees which have been dated at over one thousand years old and are thus older than the castle and the estate. They are deemed to be two of the finest in Scotland.
