Pendicle | Autumn is nice, hey? There are a few beech, ash and oak trees hiding in this coniferous plantation. You don’t notice them for most of the year- then KAPOW- Autumn turns up and they glow. #guardswell #guardswellfarm #autumn #trees #autumntrees #fallingleaves #autumnleaves #oak #ash #beech #scotlandisnow

Between the log burner in our little cabin and the fire pit just outside, this pile started out a LOT higher 🙄 ⁠

High above this Guardswell Farm is this little boat, surrounded by a sea of sheep and with zero chance of ever getting sea sick - the perfect little hideaway 😍⁠

Winter Yoga + Brunch | With a little difference this time... the yoga teacher becomes the chef!
Thrilled to have the beautiful @forensichelen and @hevtaylor6 running a double whammy Yoga Brunch on the 24th of November (a couple of Sundays away!). Helen- despite being very humble about it- is a stupidly good cook as well as a yoga instructor, and we thought we’d turn the tables a little for this event!
Heather, who will be leading the invigorating class, began her Yoga journey over 20years ago- and is a certified 200hr Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher.

We can’t wait to have this pair at Guardswell... and, perhaps for the first time, take part in the yoga brunch ourselves!! Tickets can be found on the events page of our website- as well as the link in our bio.

A bundle of sage from our last yoga event... harvested from the Kailyard garden and photographed by @agipsyinthekitchen

The Boat | Ships ahoy... what’s that we spy? A boat atop a hill? Rescued from Dysart harbour, destined to be burned... she now sits, overlooking the Tay estuary. Waters of the east coast, up to where she was built 104 years ago in Fraserburgh. We love her. She’s a little refuge, a bothy, a cosy spot for those out on walks on the farm... and the wonderful walkers leave magical notes in the ships log #Guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #boat #guardswellboat #hilltopboat #bothy #refuge #carseofgowrie #rivertay #scotlandisnow

Bike Routes | We’re based on one of the middle cyclists hills of the Braes of the Carse... this area is known for its steep short climbs, zigzagging the length of the Carse of Gowrie. Lots of huffing and puffing to get up to the Farm, whichever route you choose to take... but that does mean it’s downhill on the way home. We’re only 13miles from Dundee Train Station, and a route that takes you entirely on little back roads- enjoying the view. #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #bike #bikeholiday #stay #play #hut #hutting #cycle #cyclingholiday #carseofgowrie

Lovely couple of days exploring @guardswellfarm with @hollyhkay 😄 Time mostly spent building fires, drinking good wine and aiming to reach 100% chill - a perfect spot for a cosy getaway, we'll definitely be back 😊

Infield | Palettes of muted greens, russet orange, umber and grey... definitely the best time of year to get the fire roaring! It’s pretty cool that the Infield view changes week on week, showcasing moving seasons and agricultural rotations... ploughed earth to new green growth, through the vibrant yellow of the oilseed rape and onto golden cereals ready for harvesting. #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #carseofgowrie #viewsfordays #infield #hut #hutstay #hutting #farming #farmingrotation #agriculture

Rowan | Autumn, you beautiful beast. We have the most spectacular Rowan in the Farmhouse garden... she produces both yellow and red berries (must be two varieties planted together? Or maybe a different rootstock). She’s also keeping us safe from all of the (bad) witches out there... happy to welcome the good ones with open arms, if you know of any #guardswell #guardswellfarm #Farm #rowan #rowanberries #rowanfolklore #folklore #autumn #berries #nature #scotlandisnow

H A P P Y M O N D A Y !! A week of project work ahead in the Drawing Office. We popped in to @aranbakery this weekend to buy our copy of @florashedden ‘s beautiful new book which is full of lovely stories about Aran’s first 2 years, their quirky customers and of course so many delicious recipes. We were so excited to see that a recipe has been named after @guardswellfarm (one of our #agritecture projects) and Building Workshop even gets a little mention! .

Fire Pit | New cosy firepit blankets for each hut... they’re ENORMOUS! Perfect for wrapping yourselves up in... twice round... so that can sit around the firepit regardless of the chill factor! What a view today! Tattie harvester working away down below us, trees starting to change colour, so little wind that chimney smoke is stretching vertically #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #farmstay #hut #hutting #glampingscotland #pendicle #infield #kailyard #firepit #cosy #coorie #autumn #scotlandisnow

Guardswell Grows Supper | Seriously fully tummies after what turned into a six course celebration of @guardswellgrows magnificent summer growing season.

Auberginies | A magical vegetable... or are you a fruit? Do you prefer to be paired with Parmesan and unctuous deep red tomato sauce, or sesame oil and chilli? As perfect when you’re wee as when you’re large. We’re going to miss you- the @guardswellgrows glasshouse said bye to these fruits of perfection this weekend... until next year amigos #Guardswell #guardswellfarm #guardswellgrows #aubergines #eggplant #grow #farm #seasonal #seasons #helloautumn #growing #homegrown

Essential Hut Gear | The outdoor cooking cupboard- full of pots, pans, utensils, griddles... you name it! Perfect for campfire-ing whilst you watch the stars twinkle above. The nights are definitely getting colder- so it’s time to don a blankcape and snuggle in as close as you can to the flames #Guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #farmstay #outdoorcooking #campfire #campfirecooking #wildfood #scotlandisnow

Woodland Sounds | A magical evening in the woods with @maxwellquartet . Festoon lights, Rowan Fizz to warm the insides, beautiful nibbles made by @forensichelen - including insanely delicious @guardswellgrows gazpacho. A big thank you to those who donned their cosy coats and joined us for the evening #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #woodland #concert #maxwellstringquartet #outdoorconcert #music #maxwellquartet #stay #play #learn

IF MUSIC BE THE FOOD OF LOVE... | There is nothing I love more than getting in the kitchen. And I can’t believe I’m about to say this but…This Saturday evening I have the chance to cook in the amazing @guardswellfarm kitchen for the lovely folk coming along to the @maxwellquartet Autumn Concert. I can't think of a more perfect soundtrack to cook to and it's a dream of an opportunity for me so be prepared for the glut of food photos to come!

28 Sep | Indoor and outdoor elements. Cosy coats recommended. If you didn’t make their last evening here...well, you should try and make this one.

Fire | Who’s started getting ready for autumn and winter? Logs and kindling, stacks a’fillin’. This is totally our favourite time of year to spend in the huts and the Steading- get the fire roaring, warm the toes and the cockles... ooooft! Nothing better than coming back to that after a chilly walk, wrapped up in many layers- wellies essential. #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #huts #hutting #farmstay #hutstay #fire #woodburner #firewood #logstack

Guardswell Grows Supper | A celebration of how clever nature is. Join us for a long table supper at Guardswell Farm to celebrate the first season of @guardswellgrows . The work put in by the soil and the work put in by the farmer. The food on your plate has come from the ground under your feet. The flowers from the meadows and woodlands. You’ll eat on a table made of wood from our family farm. Guardswell Grows wishes to say thank you to everyone who has supported the Farmstand and the Veg Box Scheme, to everyone who’s pulled a weed or plucked a tomato.

Views | Unexpected glimpses of views all over the place at Guardswell. As well as the big panoramic Carse of Gowrie view, we look over beautiful Dundee. The Tay estuary, Tay bridges, Dundee Law, over to Auchterhouse, and the North Eastern tip of fife. A little reflection of Dundee in our front doors. #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #views #viewofscotland #dundee #dundeescotland #carseofgowrie #reflections #monday #scotlandisnow

Childrens Workshops | The freedom to run around a farm, a woodland, even just a big empty barn. We have some fab children’s events in the diary... starting with Family Yoga with @forensichelen and then two awesome days of Outdoor Day Camp with @scrapantics where children can do that- feel free and wild! #guardswell #guardswellfarm #events #workshops #learn #free #wild #wildandfree #childrensworkshops #stay #play #learn #scotlandisnow

Guardswell Grows | She’s popped away on a Scottish adventure... and so we were drafted in to help with a little watering and harvesting... and wooooft her veggies are INCREDIBLE! An afternoon harvesting tomatoes and patty pans, padron peppers and rainbow chard... @guardswellgrows has all of the green fingers! Super excited for the fab @kitchen_east to be using a heap of the beautiful produce at Guardswell tomorrow. And a wee side note... we have SO many tomatoes... does anyone fancy some?! Chutney, salmorejo, confit, ketchup, gazpacho, fried, soup, dried, sauce for the freezer for the winter... or how about dipping them in toffee and serving them on a stick like they do in Taiwan?! #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #guardswellgrows #harvest #produce #growyourown #nochemical #perthshire #scotlandisnow #tomatoes

Aeonium | An obsession in its infancy. Who else has a love for these little aeonium arboreums?! Especially in old handmade terracotta pots... seeking out a perfect shelf - or sill- at the farm #guardswell #guardswellfarm #farm #stay #play #learn #selfcatering #grow #aeonium #aeoniumarboreum
