The walled garden at Inverewe. There are pink flowers in the foreground and Loch Ewe to the left of the shot with mountains in the background. Paths lead through the middle of the garden, and a man walks along one of them.

Rare species thrive in this heritage garden as the effects of the Gulf Stream meet the Highlands.

About this place

  • Discover the story of a father and daughter who created a garden amid a barren wilderness on the Atlantic coast in the North West Highlands.
  • Explore the garden of experimentation and wonder at the calendar of colour and scents, cultivated with care ... and a hefty dose of creativity.
  • Spot Scotland’s Big 5 in wildlife: red squirrel, red deer, otter, seal and golden eagle. You may even see a big 6th – the sea eagle!
  • Be inspired by the artists in residence in the Sawyer Gallery.
  • Look out for Inverewe’s huge California redwoods that tower into the sky – you can’t miss them!

It’s astonishing what you can grow in one of the most northerly corners of Scotland when you put your mind to it! Meandering through the garden on this remote stretch of coastline is a paradise of unusual and wonderful plants, where the unexpected greets you at every corner.

Inverewe celebrates the best of human achievements in the natural environment. Marvel at our heritage garden, containing species from across the globe and created from a barren wilderness in the 19th century. A labour of love and enduring commitment, it’s a feast for your senses.

This is a setting that inspires art and creativity. At its heart is a museum with a twist, where you’re encouraged to interact with a variety of objects and play games. The adjacent Sawyer Gallery hosts exhibitions throughout the year that reflect the characteristics of the garden and surrounding environment.
