Crarae is a rugged woodland garden which has spectacular displays of rhododendrons in May and June, a narrow gorge with waterfalls, pools, and varied wildlife from red squirrels and pine martens to otters. Above the garden is the forest garden, a very wild area which was planted in the 1930s as an experiment. This area now has stands of fine tall trees in a unique wild setting but is not open to the public. Champion Trees: Abies, acer and chamaecyparis National Plant Collection: Nothofagus
