Oban - Arduaine Gardens (half day)

A green oasis of tranquillity nestling on the west coast, Arduaine Gardens will surprise and delight you. This 8-ha (20-acre)garden on the Sound of Jura lies on the south slope of a promontory between Loch Melfort and Asknish Bay and benefits from the warming effect of the North Atlantic Drift or Gulf Stream. The spectacular rhododendrons bring enthusiasts from far and wide, and azaleas, magnolias and many other shrubs fill the garden with scent and colour. Blue Tibetan poppies, giant Himalayan lilies and Chatham Island forget-me-nots are just part of a perennial collection flowering well on into autumn. From the tall trees of the woodland garden to the water lilies in the ponds, Arduaine takes the visitor on a horticultural journey across the temperate world.

Visit these lovely gardens today and savour the beautiful journey South along the stunning West Coast from Oban.
