| 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.
