Claymoddie Garden & Galloway Plants


Described as “the most romantic garden” in this part of Scotland and, despite the endless process of development necessary to keep any garden fresh and interesting, has an air of timelessness and intimacy.

The garden was started from nothing by Robin Nicholson in 1970 on a woodland site and now extends to over 5 acres. The mature trees now provide the backdrop to a magical garden design which owes nothing to concrete or stainless steel but much to a natural instinct for imaginative landscaping and a wide range of well-placed favourites and exotica.

They face challenges familiar to those who garden in the south-westernmost part of Scotland — relentless winds and, being near the sea, searing salt blown in on south-westerly gales. Shelter is essential, and this has been provided by stone walls, steps and “follies”, and a variety of wind-hardy, tough but interesting trees and shrubs, arranged meticulously so as to retain the wonderful views seaward to the Isle of Man.

Open:  Mar – Sept, Sats & Suns 2pm–5pm or by appointment.
