It was restored and replanted from 1983-85.  A collection of rare and unusual plants, including a superb collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, acers, old fashioned roses and an array of herbaceous perennials.

The history of Bolfracks House dates to the 17th and 18th centuries, when it was owned by the Menzies family. The estate was later sold in the late 18th century to become part of the Taymouth Castle Estate.   In 2020, Athel and Annie Price sold their beloved estate to Davide Fregonese and Ivana Todoric, who fell in love with it at first sight during a brief visit in the summer of that year. The couple is dedicated to preserving the garden as per the original designs of Douglas Hutchison. They have also made some updates to the house, such as adding modern amenities while still preserving its historic character.

Overall, Bolfracks House is a truly special place that offers a unique blend of history, luxury, and natural beauty. Whether you are looking for a relaxing getaway or a place to host a special event, this estate is sure to exceed your expectations.
