Crarae garden was first created in 1912 by Lady Grace Campbell, aunt of intrepid plant hunter Reginald Farrer, who sourced trees and shrubs from China, Nepal and Tibet. The garden is a living museum of late Edwardian tastes – rich in rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, magnolias and soaring beech and eucalyptus trees. Paths at the garden wind through the gorge and climb to the ridge with spectacular view points over the garden and Loch Fyne. One of the Glorious Gardens of Argyll and Bute.
Over half of the gardens are taking part to support open garden charity Scotland’s Gardens Scheme which raises money for hundreds of local charities.
