We have visited this wonderful garden many times over the last 10 years and it gets more beautiful each time we go. Quite different from other open gardens in the area, it is a haven of peace and tranquillity, even when there are lots of visitors. We especially love the fact that there are so many places to sit and... More

This is one of our favourite spots, the coffe and cakes are to die for and the gardens are wonderful. Just to add to the fun I spent a couple of hours just watching the clouds because there seems to be a very localised atmospheric phenomenon happens here. Go and take a look for yourself - you will not regret... More

Having visited many gardens throughout the UK we were both in agreement that the Glenwhan Gardens were a breath of fresh air and one of the best gardens we have ever visited. The gardens from all angles gave you breathtaking views to all angles of the gardens. The two lakes were clean, tidy and were the picture for many photographs.... More

What an experience! Lovely garden, friendly staff. An experience not to be missed and loads of ideas for our own garden. The work put in to create this garden is an inspiration to all gardeners.

It has taken the owners 40+ years of hard graft to form this stunning garden from former heathland. This is not a play garden for kids, but a gardener's or garden lover's delight - ponds, shrubs, flowers, focal points of sculptures and benches, and reclaimed moorland walks set in a stunning part of Scotland. As other people have stipulated, there... More

A beautifully natural garden which has been carefully planned, planted and maintained. The Tea Room is pretty good too!

A lovely garden, with peacocks, pond and wetland areas, and meandering paths to wander through. Quite hilly in places. This garden was created from moorland over 40 years and it is an amazing achievement. We really enjoyed our visit. We had lunch in the tearooms; the food was good but some of the customer service a little abrupt! Otherwise, recommended.
