Galloway Gardens form alliance

SIX gardens in south west Scotland have joined together to form ‘Scotland’s Garden Route’.

Based within a five-mile radius, the gardens – located in the Rhins of Galloway on Scotland’s south western peninsula – are in close enough proximity for groups to visit two or three in a single day.
This part of Scotland is famed for its weather, warmed by the Gulf Stream, which creates a unique microclimate perfectly suited to growing unusual and exotic species, particularly plants from the southern hemisphere.
‘Scotland’s Garden Route’ comprises Castle Kennedy, Dunskey, Glenwhan, Logan House, Ardwell and Logan Botanic Garden.
Between them, they provide sights that include rows of cabbage palms, monkey puzzle avenues, a eucalyptus grove and gunnera bogs.
Five of the six gardens take part in the Gardens of Galloway Passport scheme, offering 10% off entrance fees once your passport is validated by visiting one of the gardens and collecting a stamp. Logan Botanic Garden is not yet part of the scheme due to its automated system.
