Gardens

The Gardens are open for all to enjoy. Like many gardens on the West Coast o Argyll, the mild climate of the Gulf Stream combined with our acidic soil, enables an outstanding range of plants to grow and thrive.

There are many mature trees, Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Embothrium, Eucryphia and lots of other rare and unusual plants around the grounds of Kinlochlaich Garden Self catering.

  •  The famous garden plant centre is within and beyond the Walled Garden. Visit the Kinlochlaich Garden Plant Centre website.
  • The Woodland Walk surrounds the Tennis Court, available for guests use, which in Spring is full of heady scents and carpeted with bluebells.
  • The octagonal walled garden, was built around 1790 and has some formal garden, espaliered fruits trees, the Vegetable Garden, poly-houses with grapes, figs, apricots and peaches.
  • The Spring Garden has a fantastic specimen of Rhododendron falconeri, planted by Edward Hutchison over 50 years ago. It is the size of a tree, and has amazing flowers. The japanese red bridge sits underneath.

Kinlochlaich Gardens are also open under Scotland’s Garden Scheme and are one of a group of 20 gardens, known as the Glorious Gardens of Argyll & Bute.
