Our Favourite Local Gardens

Logan Botanic Garden
Logan lies at the south western tip of Scotland, and is unrivalled as the country's most exotic garden. Because of the influence of the Gulf Stream, a remarkable collection of bizarre and beautiful plants from the Southern Hemisphere flourishes outside. Wonder at the groves of eucalypts and at the Gunnera Bog in the Woodland Garden. Enjoy the brilliant blooms in the Walled Garden. This is a showcase for tender plants, and provides a blaze of colour all year round. An exciting new addition is Local Heroes, featuring a fascinating collection of native coastal treasures found in this region. Visit the Discovery Centre, and unearth the intriguing history of this Garden, from its foundation to its current wealth of plant collections. Self guided audio tours highlight interesting plants and features in this beautiful garden

Castle Kennedy Gardens
Beautiful landscaped gardens laid out between two large natural lochs. Extending to 75 acres, the gardens are world famous for rhododendrons and many other exotic trees and shrubs

Glenwhan Gardens
Glenwhan has been described as, "One of the best newly created gardens in recent times". Hard to believe this 12 acre garden was only begun in 1980, forged out of bare moorland. Now an area of outstanding natural beauty, set 300 feet above sea level, with lovely views across Luce Bay to the Mull of Galloway. This plantsman paradise boasts plants from around the world, helped by the gentle influences of the Gulf Stream. Centred around two ornamental lakes, seats and walkways abound

Ardwell gardens
Daffodils, rock plants, rhododendrons and flowering shrubs in woodland setting. Pond walk and sea views
