Logan Botanic Garden

 

 

At the south-western tip of Scotland lies Logan Botanic Garden, unrivalled as the country's most exotic Garden. With a mild climate washed by the Gulf Stream, a remarkable collection of bizarre and beautiful plants, especially from the Southern Hemisphere, flourish out-of-doors.

Logan has many delightful features such as the colourful Walled Garden with its tree ferns, palms and borders and the contrasting Woodland Garden with its unworldly Gunnera bog and collections of unusual trees and shrubs. There's also a Water and Terrace Garden plus a display featuring native coastal plant treasures. Take a self-guided audio tour of the garden and visit the Discovery Centre for more information.

Delicious home-baking can also be sampled at the Salad Bar and a great range of appealing local crafts, gifts and a selection of Logan's best loved plants are available at The Botanics Shop.
