Glenwhan Gardens, Arboretum and Tea Room

Glenwhan Gardens has been described as one of the most beautiful newly made gardens in Scotland. with unique & stunning sea views across to the Isle of Man, Luce Bay, and the Mull of Galloway.

The Gardens are a labour of love, hewn from rough moorland 40 years ago. With the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, Glenwhan grows many tender plants from around the Southern Hemisphere, together with large collections of rare trees and shrubs. A numbered tree trail for the dendrologist has been collated, along with a 17-acre moorland walk with 120 species of wildflowers, grasses, and ferns. Two small lakes (Lochans) are the focal point of these family-run gardens, with seats and meandering paths running along enchanting walks with interesting sculptures, which the visitor will discover.

The Tearoom prides itself on its delicious home baking and warming homemade soups. Home-grown vegetables and use of fresh locally-sourced produce are used wherever possible. We have a small but well-stocked plant nursery situated by the tearoom, incorporating many of the plants which may be seen growing in the gardens. We aim to produce our own plants and we are happy to propagate any plants for our customers.

 

Glenwhan Gardens are open all year round so that our visitors can experience the full range of the seasons and changes in our flora and fauna.  During the Spring and Summer months, when our tearoom is open, please obtain your tickets from the tearoom. During the Autumn and Winter months we operate an Honesty Box at the entrance.
