A lush, sub-tropical-style, oasis perched on a peninsula at the edge of Loch Ewe amid the rugged landscape of Wester Ross, this world-famous historic garden is one of Scotland’s most popular botanical attractions.

It is surrounded by an extensive estate managed for conservation. Encompassing 2000 acres the estate is home to many species of mammals and birds.  Our trail paths give visitors the opportunity to get closer to nature.

The stunning vistas on the journey from Inverness to Inverewe is one of the most spectacular in Scotland, making a visit even more worthwhile.

The garden was created out of bare rock and a few scrub willows in 1862 by Osgood Mackenzie and is full of colourful, exotic plants from around the world.

Highlights include the most northerly planting of rare Wollemi pines, Himalayan blue poppies, olearia from New Zealand, Tasmanian eucalypts, and rhododendrons from China, Nepal and the Indian subcontinent.

These plants flourish here, despite the northerly latitude, thanks to the warm currents of the Gulf Stream and the foresight of Osgood Mackenzie, who planted over 100 acres of woodland to shelter the garden. See the above video to take a tour round the garden with David Mitchell, curator at the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful gardens in Scotland, Inverewe is a must for anyone who loves nature.
