Explorers Garden

Parks & Gardens

Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Port Na Craig, Pitlochry, Perthshire, PH16 5DR

    The Explorers Garden tells the stories of some of the men who risked their lives travelling the globe to find new plants and trees for cultivation, commerce and conservation.

    The garden is separated into glades, representing the areas of the world from where plants originated; so one minute you can be strolling through the North American glade, the next you're trekking through Nepal. Sculptures, artworks, specially commissioned buildings and stunning views appear around every corner.

    Please note that the proceeds raised from the admission price of this garden are distributed to charities chosen by the garden owner and Scotland's Garden Scheme.
