Glenwhan Gardens has been described as “One of the loveliest and best newly created .gardens in recent times and Charles Quest-Ritson (Author of ‘Gardens of Europe’) wrote:” Glenwhan Gardens are an education and inspiration to all”.
What was once wild moorland together with the odd willow, is today Glenwhan Gardens. The original bracken, gorse and willow has, with careful planting, been replaced with a twelve acre garden filled with glorious collections of plants from around the world. The Garden, situated on the Western Seaboard, benefits from the warming influences of the Gulf Stream on the Rhins and Mull of Galloway.
