Inverewe Garden

IV22 2LG

Osgood Mackenzie's plan to create a garden from windswept moorland on a rocky peninsula beside Loch Ewe raised a few eyebrows in its day. His vision is still astonishing today, with some of the world's largest growing trees planted into holes hewen out of the bedrock. He chose his site well. The garden is nurtured by the warm currents of the North Atlantic Drift, and is set amidst some of the country's finest scenery.

Over time a kaleidoscope of exotic plants has been cultivated, giving colour and interest throughout the year - a plantsman's paradise with Chinese rhododendrons, Tasmanian eucalypts, Himalayan blue poppies, New Zealand daisy bushes, Chilean lantern-trees, Californian dog's tooth violets, South African bulbs, Mediterranean rock roses and many more besides. Here 'America' and 'Japan' are but a stone's throw apart.
