  • This garden is free, which makes it more attractive. I think had I paid much to get in I would have been disappointed, but if you are a plant enthusiast, any botanical garden will be of interest. Has ...  more »

  • I am a tourist and honestly didn't expect a botanical garden in Inverness. Also didn't expect the variety of plants on display specially the tropical & desert collection. Being from India, was lovely to see the bananas growing on the tree and some lovely flower collection that I usually see back home. We arrived a little late and cafe had closed by then. Would definitely recommend to visit if you are around Inverness. 2 to 3 hours would be more than enough to have a relaxing time with some tea/coffee.
  • Small botanical garden that is run by volunteers, that turned out to be a real treat! Lovely displays, amazing variety and a real feeling that the volunteers work incredibly hard to make it a very special. Place. Good cafe with home made cakes too! Can't recommend it highly enough.
  • Wonderful and only a donation is asked for. Lovely plants for sale as well. Must not be missed by garden lovers if you are near Inverness with walks by the river as well.
  • Enjoyed the color of the flowers. We sat outside and ate delicious mushroom soup.
  • The cafe has a little outdoor area that we really enjoyed then we followed that into the beautifully maintained garden areas. There's a small section where you can purchase plants to take home then that flows nicely into the display greenhouses. The plants are marked with the names and locations they naturally grow. It made for a lovely morning.

Where to stay in Inverness

You’ll easily find bed and breakfasts and guesthouses convenient to the center of town in Inverness, from the cozy to more large-scale places, often with a view down to the River Ness, which later joins Loch Ness. For more affordable accommodation, look for a few budget hostels, as well as camping and caravan sites. If you've got a car, consider staying just outside the city in a quiet village, where you can explore the city by day and nature by evening. Since this is the largest city in the Highlands, you'll probably be able to find something last minute, but if you have a specific type of accommodtion in mind, it's a good idea to book in advance.
