Details

Glenwhan Gardens, Arboretum and Tea Room are described as one of the best newly created gardens in recent times.  It is hard to believe just over thirty years ago there existed only bog, rushes and gorse.  Glenwhan Gardens is a Visit Scotland 4 star garden and RHS partner garden.

The focal point of this outstanding 12 acre garden centres round two small lakes with magnificent views across Luce Bay and to the Mull of Galloway. The warming effects of the Gulf Stram allow exotic and tender plants from around the southern hemisphere to florish and large collections of rare trees and shrubs may be discovered.
This is a garden for all seasons – not only in spring when azaleas and rhododendrons dazzle the visitor – but throughout the summer when  many rare gems may be discovered. Red squirrels and peacocks also live in the garden.

Glenwhan Gardens, Arboretum and  Tea Room are OPEN for the New Season
