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. « less

I visited the Inverness Botanic Gardens with a friend on 15 April 2014. I liked how nicely this place is kept up. I liked the wide variety of trees and the rocks. We also saw a pond with very big goldfish and other varieties of fish. I liked the many greenhouses. If you are in Inverness, this place is definitely... More

We had no idea this was here until we attended photo shoot for a wedding.It's stunning!The advertising should be more upfront.We've told so many people about it --they had no idea it was there .A tiny piece of heaven.

This was a pleasant way to spend an hour or so, just wandering around the gardens. Not as big as many I have seen in my travels around the world but Inverness is only a small city in relation to others around. Some lovely plants in the hot house area. Only interesting for those who love gardening or who appreciate... More

Although we visit Inverness a couple of times per year, neither of us knew that the Botanic Gardens existed! So this was a real find. What an enjoyable visit it proved to be. It was good to get out of the snow showers and into the warmth of the tropical hot houses. A vast array of plants, beautifully laid out,... More

Great gardens and big hothouses with Cacti and jungle plants. Koi carp for the children, sensory garden for those who love the scents and sounds, lots of seating - and free.

This is a great all round place, I love coming here, it's the perfect meeting place. We come here on a Sunday for afternoon tea and a wander round the floral hall, the little one likes to see the fish and the cacti . During the week if I can't find my mother, I can find her in the tea... More

The cafe here opens at ten and our choice of a bacon roll and coffee was excellent. Very pleasant staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Glass houses were a treat considering it was early March.

We came across the Botanical Gardens whilst on a circular walk of the canal and river - we popped into the Cafe for a pit stop and cup of tea not realising until inside it was also the entrance to the botanical garden. I'm a bit of a plant nerd and dragged my other half around for a good hour... More
