Attadale Gardens, Strathcarron
(4.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Attadale Gardens are breathtakingly original and imaginative and are surrounding by stunning views of the West of Scotland. We have been there several times and there is always something new to admire. I particularly the sculptures and the Janpanese garden.
