Although we have visited the area several times, we hadn't visited Leckmelm gardens before, what a great treat we have missed !
Even in late September there are a few flowers providing some colour & some of the trees are starting to change colour, in a few weeks the gardens will be spectacular.
The variety of trees is stunning with a lot of specimens not seen anywhere else
The gardens are dog friendly & most areas are wheelchair friendly too (there are some steps)
There is no admission charge , just a suggested donation .

What a Delight
Aug 2019
A wonderful treat with some amazing trees. You can take your dogs in on a lead. It is wonderfully planted and the height of some of the older trees takes your breath away. You can exit down to Loch Broom as well. They are continuing to plant new varieties of trees

Lovely in Spring for colour and variety
May 2019 • Couples
Access to parking is through a narrow arch in a wide wall - approach with care! Donation of #3 for access is reasonable BUT no facilities such as toilets or refreshments on site.
Good variety of shrubs and trees, and obvious work going on to replace lost trees and ensure variety for future years. Nice stroll will take you round in under an hour.

This is a great place to visit at this time of year (early May). Lots of the rhodedendrums are in full bloom and are well worth seeing.

Great place to wander round at your own pace.

Lots of unusual trees in a lovely setting by the loch. It doesn't take a huge amount of time to go round the entire place but the cost is so reasonable and we had the entire place to ourselves. There is quite a narrow vehicle entrance to the car park.

Interesting garden.

Decided to visit after reading a few trip advisor reviews, so pleased we did. A beautiful sunny morning and we had the place to ourselves. Surprised at the age and size of some of the trees. Worth every penny of the £3 per person admission.

Peaceful walk through the trees....
Apr 2018 • Couples
Spent a very pleasesant couple hours strolling through these gardens as it was only a short drive from Ullapool. We were the only ones there. Amazing trees and some beautiful rhodendrum plants, not all were in bloom but the ones that were were gorgeous. Give it another week and it will be a blaze of colour. Well,worth a visit.

Extremely peaceful and beautiful
Apr 2018 • Couples
We have been to Ullapool on numerous occasions but this is the first time we have visited this arboretum as we are usually in the village in the winter months and it is open from April to October. We are really pleased we visited it as it is an oasis of peace and beatufully laid out and kept grounds between the main road down into the village and the loch. It is signposted from the main road, just a little way south of the village. There is a small car park with a very narrow entrance. Once inside, the trees and shrubs are magnificent. In late April we saw numerous rhododendrons and camellias as well as daffodils and other spring flowers. There are some magnificent tree specimens all very well labelled. Paths take one through the grounds and one can walk right down to the edge of the loch as my photos show. We definitely hope to return in a different season of the year.

Surprisingly interesting
Apr 2018 • Family
This small tucked-away garden is a hidden treasure. There are some spectacular specimens of trees from around the world, and amazings views along Loch Broom. The garden is well looked after and is a pleasant, quiet sort of place. We are never disappointed.

A beautiful small arboretum near ullapool.

We visited during a weeks holiday in October to north west Scotland. The gardens were lovely even this late in the season and the walks through the arboretum and along the shores of loch broom were stunning. Closed during the winter months but well worth a visit in season.
