Inverewe Garden and Estate

Parks & Gardens

Poolewe, Poolewe, Wester Ross, IV22 2LG

    One of the most beautiful places in Scotland, Inverewe Garden is an oasis of exotic plants bursting with vibrant colour.

    The sheer audacity of Osgood Mackenzie vision in creating this outstanding 20-ha (50-a) garden, impressively set on a peninsula on the shore of Loch Ewe, is still astonishing today. The journey to Inverewe itself is spectacular, as you drive through stunning Highland scenery to reach it.

    The warm currents of the North Atlantic Drift or Gulf Stream help nurture an oasis of colour and fertility, where exotic plants from many countries flourish on a latitude more northerly than Moscow. Himalayan rhododendrons, Tasmanian eucalypts, a large collection of New Zealand plants (including the National Collection of Olearia), diverse Chilean and South African introductions combine to give a colourful display throughout the year.

    Marked footpaths provide access to the wider estate with its lochside wildlife hide and opportunities to spot all kind of birds and wildlife throughout the year.
