18 Duchess Park (NEW) Helensburgh G84 9PY (Stewart and Sue Campbell): The garden is small, 40 years old, and is still being developed. The site was originally a paddock on the edge of Duchess Wood, which backs on to the garden and forms a 'borrowed landscape'. The rear garden is sloping with two sets of steps to get to the upper garden. It is a woodland garden with two large oak trees, many species and hybrid rhododendrons, and other woodland shrubs and plants.

High Glenan Helensburgh G84 9LG (Tom and Tricia Stewart): A secluded garden with burn and waterside plants, gravel garden, herb and herbaceous borders and kitchen garden with selection of fruit and vegetables. Extensive programme of hard-landscaping has been undertaken over the last ten years.

Westburn 50 Campbell Street G84 9NH (Professor and Mrs Baker): A woodland garden of just over two acres. The Glenan Burn runs through a woodland of oak and beech trees with bluebells in the springtime. Some of the paths are steep, but there are bridges over the burn and handrails in places. There is also an air raid shelter, and the remains of a kiln, where James Ballantyne Hannay manufactured artificial diamonds in the 1800s. A lawn is surrounded by rhododendrons and azaleas, and there is a vegetable garden.

Directions: 18 Duchess Park - Travel west along Queen Street about half a mile from High Glenan and it becomes Duchess Park, a cul de sac. Number 18 is at the far end on the right. High Glenan - Approximately half a mile along Queen Street from its junction with Sinclair Street on the right-hand side. Westburn - Proceed along West Montrose Street from Sinclair Street and take the fourth turn on the right. The entrance to Westburn is 100 yards up Campbell Street on the right-hand side.

Short guided wildflower walks in Duchess Wood will be offered during the afternoon by the Friends of Duchess Wood. The bluebells should be in bloom. If the weather is poor, stout shoes are recommended. There will be homemade teas at High Glenan and a plant stall at Westburn.
