This outstanding 20 ha (50 a) garden, part of a 890 ha (2, 200 a) Highland estate, is impressively set on a peninsula on the shores of Loch Ewe. The warm currents of the North Atlantic Drift or Gulf Stream help to create an oasis of colour and fertility where exotic plants from many countries flourish on a latitude more northerly than Moscow, giving an almost continual display of colour throughout the year. Himalayan rhododendrons, Tasmanian eucalypts and many Chilean and South African plants are featured, together with a large collection of New Zealand plants including the National Collection of the genus 'Olearia'. Visitor Centre, marked footpaths.
