The Garden Gates of Nairn
Wednesday, 13 November 2019
On our recent holiday to Nairn in Morayshire we couldn’t help but notice the wide and wonderful array of garden gates there. A lot of thought has been put into their garden gates, reflecting their styles and passions. As garden designers, we love it when people think about the details in their gardens making it unique to them. They are often the first thing that greet you when you arrive home or they make the all important entrance to your back garden – they deserve a bit of thought. Here are some of our favourite garden gates of Nairn and why…
This simple picket style gate is an attractive entrance to the garden
A cobweb gate adds a spooky slant to the garden – perfect for Halloween!
We liked the geometry on this gate
Another simple picket style gate. We like the curved tops and the choice of paint colour
Is this the skinniest gate you have ever seen??
We like the detailing on this gate and how the fence increases in height to meet it
A gate painted to match its neighbouring trellis gives a lovely unified look
Another painted gate, this one a bold blue and in a traditional style. It works beautifully with all the colours beyond.
A wrought iron gate is a traditional and hard wearing design
Clearly a gate leading to a Rangers’ supporters house!
This was our favourite gate. It has a retro sun-burst design which we love and reminds us of our own garden gates…
Our own garden gate has a sun burst design and is painted slate grey as a lovely contrast to planting
