Opened in 1993 by Prince Edward, Inverness Botanic Gardens, formerly Inverness Floral Hall & Gardens, are an oasis of calm and beauty within walking distance of the city centre. With each new season the outside gardens are an explosion of colour and texture, and borders are planted to demonstrate a wide variety of plants and growing conditions. The impressive glasshouses reveal the drama of plant diversity ranging from the tropical rainforests to arid, heat scorched desert.

This place in Bught lane, Inverness, is amazing and interesting if you are a plant lover. Lots of plants, trees and cacti in the garden and glass house. If you like the plant vibe you will like here, it is special, if its quiet, better still, immersing oneself in the healing aura of plants. There is a cafe as well,... More

Really impressed with the botanic gardens. I am not a gardener, but can appreciate the hard work and care taken in the keep of the garden. Lovely tea room, and sitting areas.

Beautiful place. Great location definitely worth visit. We go their couple times a month in summer to watch the fish and occasionally to purchase some plants. The coffee shop is also very nice not to expensive with lovely and helpful staff. Can't wait to go back this year when the weather improve

Well worth a visit,free entry but a donation should be given as its maintained very well. Good to visit on a nice day as you can sit outside. It's not to big so good for older people to walk round.

We enjoyed a look round the gardens and glasshouses. The glasshouses in particular have an impressive array of plants. Lots of song birds in the gardens and we imagine the outside gardens look beautuful in Spring and Summer - howerver, we enjoyed the structure of the trees and their bark colour. There is a little temporary cafe in the tropical... More
