Abriachan GardenSubmitted by Owen McCafferty on Sat, 2009-12-19
These gardens are between Drumnadrochit and Inverness in Abriachan. It is the small village of Abriachan, situated in a hanging valley in the Highlands of Scotland. Lying in the hills above Loch Ness. The gardens are very pretty and full of colour with beautiful views of Loch Ness. The gardens were started in 1984 and because the people who started it lived overseas there are many unusual plants to see here from places such as New Zealand and the Falkland Islands. All around Abriachan are walks to suit everyone, with stunning views and beautiful flora and fauna
A Highland garden of 3 acres. Terraced beds full of beautiful and unusual plants; notable collections of Old Fashioned Primulas, Auriculas, Helianthemums and Hardy Geraniums. each spring we display a beautiful Auricula theatre. There are plantings of shrubs, herbacaceans, alpines and grasses in enriched beds, contained by dry stone walls built from local rock. Adjacent to the gardens is our nursery where you can buy many of the plants you have seen growing in the garden, together with a huge range of other interesting and unusual varieties. Visit our new "The Garden Reading Room", relax with a hot drink, browse the magazines and local information or just dream a little.
