Things to do at Scottish Planter Glendevon Bungalow, Nuwara Eliya

Situated amidst the lush green tea plantations of Nuwara Eliya, Glendevon is a quaint stone bungalow designed according to traditional Scottish architecture.

Dating back to the 1880s, the history of the estate can be traced back to Geo Armitage the first owner of the estate & later on to the Anglo-Ceylon Tea Company in Nuwara Eliya. Bungalows such as Glendevon have an ancestry that though unspecified can be clearly presumed to be approximately over 100 years old, dating to the time of the Scottish planters in Sri Lanka.
