About Glenwhan

Glenwhan Gardens & Arboretum Glenwhan Gardens & ArboretumMoorland, Tearoom & Plant Sales

Described as one of the most beautiful gardens in Scotland, situated at 300 feet, overlooking Luce Bay and the Mull of Galloway, with clear views to the Isle of Man, Glenwhan is a must-see for all who love gardens and horticulture.

Thirty years ago there existed only wild moorland, but with dedication and vision, you can now see glorious collections of plants from around the world. There is colour in all seasons with winding paths, well placed seats, and varied sculptures, focusing around small lakes, adding to the tranquil atmosphere. There is also a 17 acre moorland wild walk, the chance to see red squirrels and a well marked Tree Trail.

Glenwhan has been cultivated over four decades from bog, rushes and gorse to win accolades as one of the best new gardens of recent times. The Gardens also feature unique & spectacular sea views over Luce Bay, The Mull of Galloway, and on a clear day to The Isle of Man. The Gardens are a true labour of love, hewn from rough moorland.

Spring is the time for the Rhododendrons & Azaleas and all the acid loving plants, making the garden wonderfully colourful.
