Lip na Cloiche garden is situated close to the shoreline of the Isle of Mull, and has stunning views of Loch Tuath and the Isle of Ulva. It is well worth seeing, especially if you are interested in finding out which plants are likely to thrive in the mild local climate. A wide range of such plants is available for sale throughout the year, as well as fresh eggs and many craft items made from locally "found" materials.There is no admission charge. « less

My 8 year old daughter adored exploring this precipitous garden which has numerous hidden paths and glades - and we had it all to ourselves. A huge amount of work must have gone into it. I sat at the top and read a book while enjoying the amazing sea view!

Such a beautiful garden and amazing to think achieved in only 9 years. The view from the back of the gardens are simply breathtaking. So inspired I bought a plant to take home to Edinburgh!

So easy to drive past this little cottage which gives no real hint as to the astonishing garden that lies behind the front wall. An amazing labour of love by the owner. Ever wondered what you can do with a very steep rocky hillside? Don't miss it.

This garden is so unexpected! Packed with old bits and pieces and shrubs, plants, flowers on a packed hillside. Little paths, bridges over a stream, pressed flower cards for sale - and some of the plants! Free entry but donation for charity. Must see on Mull!

Find this gem of a private garden and you can also buy eggs, plants, crafts, cards, and vegetables. It is also a B&B. Beautiful garden crafted over 9 years on a steep hillside with great views of the Isle of Ulva. The owner is a plants woman extraordinaire and the plan incorporates her free range hens which have an unusual... More

Lip na Cloiche is a spectacular garden created by a gifted and hardworking gardener. The garden has a tremendous variety of trees and bushes and it is a joy to walk around both to admire and learn about plants in general. I have bought quite a number of plants from Lip na Cloiche and all are thriving. As a fellow... More

I love touring gardens but I appreciate it's not everyone's bag - especially my 12 year old son. But even he loved this highly creative, unusual garden which must be part of the owner's soul. Perched above a loch on a steep steep slope, the garden is full of tender and unusual plants as well as lots of familiar natives.... More

The little whitewashed cottage at the side of the road gives no hint of the amazing garden behind. We are not knowledgeable gardeners but it was obvious even to us that this must be a life time's passion for the owner. The layout and the range of plants is stunning. We couldn't believe that entry was free but we did... More

It is unusual because it has many tender plants. The location is above a loch and when you reach the top of the garden the view is lovely. There are plants for sale at reasonable prices as well as some interesting handmade cards made with shells and pressed flowers. The garden is free but donations of egg boxes and plastic... More

This garden is so beautiful and so unusual, with so many flowers and plants. An added bonus is the view when you get to the top of the garden. You can also buy plants and they are very reasonably priced. Recommended even if you are not into gardens big time.
