We visited a few gardens the weekend we visited Glenwhan. This garden put Castle Kennedy in the shade, so to speak! (and Castle Kennedy was worth a visit) Mywife is disabled and this garden made life easy for her - steady gradients lots of resting places. The weather was so good for September and this added to the beauty and... More

Took a bit of finding but well worth the search, an amazing labour of love carved out of the rocky hillside. A blaze of colour everywhere one looked, very well lid out, we called in for an hour and stayed for four, reasonably priced as well, nice little tea room.

Friends recommended this wonderful garden. Its quite a journey up a wee road to get there and you begin to think you will never find it, but just keep going. Once you get there you can have the most delicious home baking, great cakes and coffee and really nice friendly staff. We felt sad when we were there , at... More

A MUST SEE... this is one on the most beautiful gardens I have ever visited. Its packed full of plants in secret hidden sections along with a tree trail and a Moorland walk. Absolutely fantastic. Wind your way among some amazing varieties of flora and meet the resident Peacocks which add to the colour. We arrived as the Tea room... More

Loved these gardens . Lots of beautiful flowers and plants amid a large pond . A resident pheasant and lots of bird life to watch .The views from the top of the garden overlooking the sea is stunning . The tearoom serves snacks and drinks by a lovely friendly lady . Well worth a visit .

Although on a first visit it appears to be much further, this garden is only one mile from the A75. Keep climbing up the narrow road and you will be rewarded with a gem of a garden and views across the sea to the Mull of Galloway and the Isle of Man. We had a lovely clear and sunny day... More

Spending a week looking around Gardens in Dumfries and Galloway we happened upon Glenwhan, the narrow roads up to it and limited Parking space were more than made up for by the superb gardens and views. Set high with views over towards the Isle of Man there's a dazzling amount of colour and scents in this well thought out garden,... More

First visited a dozen or more years ago when the garden had some maturing to do. Today it was a profusion of colour from varieties of rhododendrons and azalias at every turn, as well as other interesting and unusual plants. A joy to visit, even on a grey day. Cream tea was pretty good too!
