Crarae Gardens

Crarae Garden, near Inveraray

Crarae Gardens on the banks of Loch Fyne, on the west coast of Scotland.

Crarae Gardens, near Inveraray in the Western Highlands of Scotland, is one of Britain's finest examples of an exotic Himalayan-style woodland garden. A good path takes you up to the top of the burn and loops back round. This tranquil site, with its dramatic gorge, rippling burn, waterfalls and cliffs is rich in rhododendrons, azaleas, eucalyptus and magnolias. 

There is wildlife in abundance with dippers feeding in the burn, crossbills and woodpeckers. Red squirrels may also be seen. The best time to visit is May, however, later in the year there are lovely Autumn tints.
