This is a gardener's garden. It has not got the presentation and range of Inverewe Gardens, it is also not as well maintained. But is has a lot of interest, with numbers of peaceful corners, full fo colour to enjoy.

A real gem of a garden. Off the main tourist track. Really worth a visit. The garden fits into the surrounding landscape perfectly. Dogs allowed. The guys who run it and the owner are friendly and chatty. OAP discount.

You are very kind to take the trouble to review us and definitely very early after our very wintery Spring with lots of snow. Thank you so much, we’re glad you enjoyed it 😊

Beautiful, relaxed gardens. Just as nature intended, beautifully managed and easy to visit. Mostly level access, and disabled parking is available near the house. We particularly enjoyed walking through the leafy paths, spotting the sculptures. Novel 'honesty' DIY tea rooms, with coffee machine and delicious...More
