The Garden Gates of Nairn

Wednesday, 13 November 2019

On our recent holiday to Nairn in Morayshire we couldn’t help but notice the wide and wonderful array of garden gates there. A lot of thought has been put into their garden gates, reflecting their styles and passions. As garden designers, we love it when people think about the details in their gardens making it unique to them. They are often the first thing that greet you when you arrive home or they make the all important entrance to your back garden – they deserve a bit of thought. Here are some of our favourite garden gates of Nairn and why…

Another painted gate, this one a bold blue and in a traditional style. It works beautifully with all the colours beyond.

This was our favourite gate. It has a retro sun-burst design which we love and reminds us of our own garden gates...
