November 2017. These conditions supersede all previous Battleby Centre
Conditions of Booking.
Battleby House and Estate was purchased by the
Countryside Commission for Scotland in 1970 and,
following various alterations to convert what had been
a private house into office accommodation, staff
moved into the premises early in 1971.
The pr
esent Battleby House was built during the
period 18611863 by James Maxtone Graham. Prior
to the purchase of the lands at Battleby by his family,
the property was owned by the Lynedoch Lairds of
Redgorton.
Battleby House was used as a hospital during World
War I.
Batt
leby has a remarkable collection of trees and
shrubs. From the 1865 Ordnance Survey map it is
clear that a formal layout to the grounds had been
established, with walks through the main woods and
a laid out garden to the south-east of the house.
There
have been losses to the collection of plants at
Battleby. Several large trees and shrubs were killed
in the severe winter of 1981, whilst others have been
uprooted by gales.
By following a circular walk visitors will be able to see
most of the beautiful and interesting trees and shrubs
to be found at Battleby. Many have been re-identified
with the help of the Royal Botanic Gardens of
Edinburgh, and labelled.
