Quiet Garden at Gleneagles

Tuesday June 12th

and Wednesday July 18th

1.45-5pm

to be led by

The Rev Tracy Dowling and Canon Andrew Meynell

Warmth, tea and coffee are provided

The aim is to provide an opportunity for stillness and reflection for visitors of any faith or none in the beautiful setting of Gleneagles, a chance to wander around this recently created wild garden or walk the grass maze and finish the afternoon with a short service in the private 16th century chapel.

The first Quiet Garden was a dream of The Rev Philip Roderick that came true over 25 years ago. The Trust to which the Quiet Gardens are affiliated is in Buckinghamshire and has the vision of spreading a network of opportunities for stillness and reflection aided by the beauty of the garden.

A suggested Donation of £3 to the Quiet Gardens Trust
