Inverary - Crarae Gardens (half day)

Head West along the stunningly beautiful coast of Loch Fyne to the charming woodland gardens of Crarae.

Set on a hillside down which tumbles the Crarae Burn, the scene is reminiscent of a Himalayan gorge. The surrounding tree and shrub collections are rich and diverse, planted for artistic and naturalistic effect. The garden contains one of the best collections of the genus Rhododendron in Scotland. Lady Grace Campbell, aunt of the Himalayan plant-hunter Reginald Farrer, began the development of Crarae Garden from woodland in 1912, on land owned by the Campbell family since 1825. The work was continued by her son and then grandson before it was generously given to the Crarae Garden Charitable Trust in 1978. Take your time to explore these beautiful Scottish gardens before continuing your scenic return to Inverary.
