Scapa Fest at Guardswell Farm

Guardswell Farm is a 150-acre grassland farm situated on a south facing hillside, between Abernyte and Kinnaird, Perthshire. With panoramic views extending from North of Dundee, along the River Tay, over to the North of Fife, down to the Carse of Gowrie and all the way along to Glencarse; we feel a bit mean keeping it all to ourselves. 

The Lamotte and Wilson families have looked after Guardswell since 2011, a little secluded hillside haven. Prior to this, the families ran The Buttery, a country house café and garden near Errol, with the family business of Scotherbs following on from that (the black and white photo below is Grandfather, Robert Wilson, at Waterybutts Farm). The whole family (Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Mothers, Fathers and Sisters) is involved in Guardswell, and it’s their love of learning, food and the farm that makes Guardswell what it is now. 

Guardswell is a secret getaway, shared with those who want to fully immerse themselves into her simple and bygone ways.

A place to suit the modern world escapee- who fancies themselves running a micro-farm, switching off from their digital dependence and taking a deep breath of Perthshire air.
