Glenwhan Gardens has been described as one of the most beautiful made gardens in Scotland with unique & stunning sea views across to the Isle of Man, Luce Bay, and the Mull of Galloway.
Glenwhan Gardens & Arboretum has multiple areas, ponds, trails and hidden corners to be explored. Our illustrated map will help you find your way and navigate the terrain of the grounds.
"Visiting gardens is always an education and we should always come away having increased our knowledge in some way. This is certainly the case after visits to Glenwhan for this is very much a garden of comparisons. Comparisons of a garden created out of moorland and certainly comparing the development of different habitats – one boggy ground, the other dry rocky knolls. The transformation is quite amazing."
Bob Mitchell OBE, former emeritus curator at St Andrews Botanic Garden
