Experience colourful displays of rhododendrons within the tranquil gardens of Armadale Castle in south Skye, former seat of the Macdonalds of Sleat. The mild climate created by the Gulf Stream sea-current and the sheltered aspect of the gardens make the gardens a floral paradise, where these magnificent blooms thrive. Indeed south Skye’s Sleat Peninsular, where the castle is situated, is known as the ‘Garden of Skye’. Set around the romantic castle ruins, there are 40 acres of historic garden to explore, with terrace walks, ponds, herbaceous borders and woodland to explore as well as the Rhododendron displays. Armadale Castle, Gardens & Museum is a Visit Scotland 5 Star visitor attraction, and your ticket also includes entrance to the fascinating Museum of the Isles.
Part of Scottish Rhododendron Festival 2018.
