Logan Botanic Garden
Logan Botanic Garden
Port Logan



  1. 5 * Logan Botanic Garden is Scotland’s Most Exotic Garden and hosts plant treasures from the southern hemisphere – rarely seen in the UK. Situated at the south-western tip of Scotland, Logan Botanic Garden is an exotic paradise tucked away amidst some of the most majestic scenery the country has to offer.

Visitors can walk through groves of eucalyptus and palm trees or stand in the shade of awesome giant rhubarb-like gunnera and from the highest point, there are superb views across the Rhins to the Galloway Hills.

Famed for its tender collections, Logan’s Walled Garden is a showcase for brilliant blooms and is ablaze with colour throughout the season. The fishpond, adorned with water lilies, creates a focal point and embellishes the air of tranquillity within the Garden.

Warmed by the Gulf Stream, the climate provides the ideal growing conditions for an amazing collection of southern hemisphere plants.

The Woodland Garden is also a delight. It is a haven for a host of weird and wonderful plants and trees such as eucalyptus to the gunnera bog.

A stroll to the highest point will reward visitors with breathtaking views over the Rhins to the Galloway Hills and beyond.

The Discovery Centre, situated near to the main entrance, gives visitors the chance to learn more about the Garden and its history. The studio hosts various exhibitions throughout the year.

Scotland’s most exotic garden never fails to impress whatever the time of year.


The wonderful Potting Shed Bistro is Dumfries & Galloway Life’s “Cafe of the Year” 2015 and is open daily to Garden visitors* between 15 March and 14 November from 10am – 4.30pm (3.30pm in November). It serves tasty lunches, light snacks and delicious home baking using the finest local ingredients and has ample outside and inside seating.
