Attadale Gardens, Strathcarron

#1 of 6 in Things to do in Strathcarron
Started by Baron Schroder in the late 19th century, hill paths meander through 20 acres of conifers and rhododendrons.

Totally transformed after the 1980s storms by Nicky & Ewen Macpherson, it is now a painter's garden, designed to frame the magnificent views of Skye and the surrounding hills. Waterfalls, Monet bridges, meconopsis, bamboo & candelabra primula are reflected in dark pools. Sculpture lurks in unexpected places.
