Base on what we saw in Inveraray, I would assume that this garden is in a micro-climat since many of the rhododendrons had already bloomed. This being said, this a very nice gardens with lovely trails nothing very difficult. Cafe house is nice. But service...More

It was a glorious day when we visited and we took the high trail which is clearly marked. It’s such a relaxing garden with wonderful trees and tranquil mini glens. There are a few steps and be careful with small children as there are sheer...More

Returning back to our hotel on a damp afternoon I would have been prepared to miss this attraction but I'm very glad we didn't. These gardens really are worth visiting, set in a hilly terrain round a brook cascading through a gorge. You have a...More

There is a babbling stream right through this garden and also a waterfall and gorge.It is covered with rhododendrons in Spring.The walk has a lot of steps but i believe there are short cuts too.

This garden has a wonderful combination of bright flowering walks, coupled with peaceful woodland walks, and a great cafe. The staff in the garden and the cafe are delightful, always willing to help with a smile. The rhododendrons are fantastic from now to mid May

There is four different walks you can take in the garden. Beautiful scenery to the loch nearby. Woodland garden, wee waterfalls, beautiful plants around. Definitely worth to visit. A wee gift shop and coffee shop included.

Super way to spend a couple of hours. Lovely gardens, egg hunt adding to the fun and focus for the kids (age 9 and 12). A like deer that we came across posed for photos and added to the magic.

Worth while visit even in Autumn. Well signposted walks of varying lengths. Peace and quiet amongst the many, some exotic, trees and shrubs. Enjoy listening to the water rushing through the gorge. Helpful and informative staff.

Visited today and found the gardens delightful. The Himalayan garden was a lovely walk i.e. The red route. An extension via the white path out and back on the blue path takes you to a splendid viewpoint overlooking loch fyne. Well worth a visit even...More
