Scottish Tree Festival: Champion Trees of Inverewe

Taking place at

The Highlands

Dates between

28 Sep - 31 Oct


A rare specimen tree, the variegated turkey oak (Quercus cerris ‘Variegata’), is believed to have been planted here in 1937 to commemorate the completion of the rebuilt Inverewe House. It became the home of Mairi Sawyer, daughter of Osgood Mackenzie.

A ‘National Champion’ tree, it’s now one of the most remarkable trees in the garden, coming late into leaf but, with its lichen-covered branches and architectural outline, eye-catching all year round.

*Usual admission prices apply for non-members.
