Attadale Gardens are spectacular gardens with views of Skye and features an impressive collection of sculpture scattered throughout. Visitors can wander through the kitchen garden, the sunken garden, the geodesic dome filled with ferns.
Attadale Gardens are exceptional gardens started by the Victorians and developed further over the last forty years by Nicky and Ewen Macpherson. The gardens include extensive water gardens and ancient paths winding through woodland and rhododendrons, over bridges, waterfalls and exotically planted ponds.
See if you can find the well-hidden sculptures throughout the gardens as well as the restored sunken garden and herb garden. The gardens also include a kitchen garden, a sunken fern garden and Japanese garden. Children enjoy searching for the sculpture scattered through the gardens.
Attadale is on the A890 between Strathcarron and S. Strome on the South side of Loch Carron. It is convenient to visit for people on their way to Isle of Skye or Eilean Donan Castle - and also those heading North to Applecross, Torridon & Shieldaig.

The main vehicle entrance to the garden is signposted after about 200 yards and there is a free visitors' carpark just before the garden entrance.
