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

The Botanic Garden is small but so worth a visit. It was nice to wander around and enjoy your surroundings without the crowds. There are plants for sale if you desire and also a nice sized cafe. I would visit again if ever in Inverness as we went later in the day and too close to closing time.

Is that rude? We had been to the botanic garden in Glasgow a few days prior, which was lovely and quite large, and I guess I was just expecting more when we got here. We were able to walk from the hotel, which was nice. On the small side as well. But not a bad place to stop at if... More

i recommend a visit, even if your not a gardener you can still appreciate the beauty. My favourite part is the tree of tranquility, its in memory of still born babies and theres golden leafs with their names carved, I think its somewhere to go to remember them as they often arnt buried etc, its a beautiful idea

When we spoke to the Inverness information guy (who was very interesting) he made this sound like a highlight. It was pretty but more if a nursery than a garden. Nice cafe with a good selection.

Floral Hall is a beautiful, but well hidden botanic garden with a great little coffee shop, located right next to Inverness Leisure and Sports Centre. Parking is easy and free in the leisure centre car parks across the lane, and the Inverness tour bus also stops here. I found the displays of tropical and non-tropical plants fascinating and I am...

One of my favourite places in Inverness. Small but lots to see. Cactus house is lovely. Nice to sit outside on a sunny day with a coffee and a cake.

If you love plants and cacti you will want to visit this garden. It is free with a donation box near entrance. Only small but very pretty.
