Attadale Gardens, Strathcarron

4.6
#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.

  • We arrived on the first day of the new season. Excellent walks, interesting features including a Japanese garden. Highlight was the honesty tea room, with tons of info on the estate and nearby attractions. Definitely recommended.
  • Really lovely experience. My visit wad just a week or two early to see the full beauty of the rhodendendrons..
  • Fabulous gardens lots to see. Wonderful plants and sculptures. DIY tearoom with homemade cakes a great pit stop.
  • The estate and gardens were interesting and beautiful, even on a cloudy autumn day. We had the pleasure of getting some viewing tips from the owner of the estate, and the lady at the entry kiosk was very kind and informative. Worth a visit in my opinion.
  • Natural beauty at its very best, situated in a sort of remote area with steep hills behind and facing the Loch.
