Owner description: Eight champion trees and magnicient rhododendrons are the undisputed kings of this historic plant collection on the shores of Loch Fyne near Cairndow. Come and see the "mightiest conifer in Europe". Something interesting in all seasons Children will love to explore The Gruffalo Trail - follow the Mouse and find the Gruffalo

Nice garden well laid out, not always suitable for people with mobility issues but we loved it. Liked the poems in the gazebo.

This garden holds many surprising features- as well as the smelly skunk cabbage and the oak gazebo lined with quotations on trees, it has claim to the Champion trees- the tallest and widest and one of the oldest- planted in 1750. The size and grandeur of the structures are amazing and take some neck straining to see the top. It was pouring with rain when we went but it didnt mar our joy as the trees acted as a canopy. The little paths opened up some wonderful views, the gorge and the mill as well as the weir which led to hydro-electric power for the house. Beautiful myrtles and rhoddies as well as Japanese trees and huge gunnerra. Some of the paths are steep and unsteady but if you take care its a real journey of pleasure. A small WC and very good value plant sales helped to make this an all round great experience.

Really enjoyed our visit, despite pushing a buggy around all the steep pathways (perhaps we should have left it in the car and carried our toddler when he was tired?). Got our photos taken hugging the tallest tree, but much more to see besides including a lovely ruined mill by a stream perfect for a pitstop - before the midges chased us off !

This garden is simply amazing. We have seen it in autumn and spring, and both are amazing. Many improvements have been made to the paths and we enjoyed the walk to the old mill. The flowers are wonderful, but it is the trees that command here. The tallest tree in Britain resides as well as several Champion trees. Just sublime.
