Parks & Gardens

Inveraray, Argyllshire, PA32 8XF

    Inverarary Castle lies on the western edge of Loch Fyne in Argyll.

    Inveraray Castle Gardens includes approximately two acres of formal lawns and a stunning collection of flowers which thrive in the Argyll climate.

    Particular highlights of the castle garden flowers include rhododendrons and azaleas during spring and early summer.

    The formal lawns stretch out into park and woodland and visitors can enjoy the many fine tree specimens planted throughout the grounds. These include Cedrus Deodars and Sequoiadendron Wellingtonia.

    The main drive of the gardens is surrounded by ‘Flag Borders’ on either side, with paths in the shape of the Saltire, Scotland’s national flag. Many of these plants are underplanted with a range of shrubs and herbaceous plants which flower throughout the year.
