The garden is a haven for wildlife. The range of plants grown attracts a wide variety of fauna. Hedgehog, field mouse, grey squirrel, toad, and many varieties of birds have been recorded. Mallard, wood pigeon, collared dove and several species of smaller birds regularly nest in the garden. To augment the natural habitats bird and bat boxes have been introduced. The wild flower meadow and the cottage garden attract bees, wasps, butterflies, beetles and other insects. In 2010 a ladybird survey (pictured) was undertaken as part of Scottish Bio-diversity Week.
