We found the gardens rather difficult to locate but once we managed to find them we were in for a treat! We entered through the iron gates as instructed and parked. We were unsure how to pay as the ancient ticket machine wasn’t working. We put our money in the box where you’re supposed to put money for postcards. As far as we were concerned this all added to the charm and sense of adventure but I can see how others might find it irksome, or even not bother paying... It was a rainy day when we visited but the garden is quite sheltered. We loved exploring all the twists and turns with a real sense of age and history. This is a garden with a story to tell. Probably not worth travelling miles to visit but if you’re in the area well worth a visit. We were enchanted and reminded of the gardens in Heligan, Cornwall, which we also love.

What a hidden gem! Everyone goes to Logan Botanic Gardens next door forgetting all about its neighbour. When we came, we had the garden all to ourselves, what a treat! The only drawback is that you are supposed to have 4 pounds in cash per person for a ticket machine. If you haven’t, you haven’t –the entry fee is supposedly voluntary. It shouldn’t! It is such a fantastic place. True, it is not a botanic garden in the sense that all plants are labeled and planted in a thought through manner. It is a garden, a bit wild, a bit unkempt, very old, full of birds, pheasants, rabbits and other wildlife. It is probably at its best a little bit earlier in spring, when all the decades old rhododendrons and azaleas are in full bloom. In my opinion it is best to visit both gardens on the same day. They were after all a part of the same, one estate in the past.

Not to be confused with Logan Botanic Garden. By all means visit this admittedly well cared-for Garden if you are interested in Champion Trees - it has lots of them, both all-Scotland and even some if you include that bit stuck onto the south of it. Otherwise, don't visit - it was a hour of my life (and £4 per head) that I'll never get back. If you still want to visit, it's easy to 'miss' the honest-box machine at the entrance and decide at the end of your visit whether it's worth paying.the imaginatively priced visit value. Once, again, do not confuse with the superb Logan Botanic Garden alongside.

I'm not so very much into exotic gardens, so the adjacent Logan Botanic Garden didn't grow on me (sorry...). I decided to give Logan House Garden a try and found there what I missed in Botanic Garden: lots of atmosphere! There were no perennials and flowerbeds, but many old trees, many shrubs in bloom (rhododendrons, azaleas), lawns, green mystical tunnels, ferns, moss paths. Heavy scents of vanilla, woodruff, incense - like in a magic forest. Certainly a good combination with the totally different Botanic Garden.

We were in a group visiting Logan Botanic Gardens and then walked into the Logan House part through the gates. I am not sure what the arrangements are and I see lots of folk say it is a rip-off. We were having a private tour of the house (not, I think, generally open to the public) but we enjoyed the walk to it.
