About the garden

Fans of ferns are in for a treat at Attadale Gardens, which is home to one of the largest fern collections in Scotland. The fern-filled geodesic dome and atmospheric sunken garden are a joy to discover. But these unfurling fronds aren’t the only thing exciting green-fingered visitors.

On arrival, visitors can marvel at the lily pad-covered water gardens before taking a stroll along the old rhododendron walk. Those with kids in tow will have a blast seeking out the animal sculptures hidden among the foliage while those looking to slow the pace can unwind in the Japanese-inspired raked gravel gardens.

But what really makes Attadale Gardens special is its location in Wester Ross, Scotland. Head up to the viewpoint where you can see this mosaic of gardens set against the beautiful backdrop of neighbouring Skye. As well as the charming gardens, there’s an onsite tearoom providing homemade snacks, sweet treats and hot drinks in exchange for a donation, which you can leave in the honesty box.

Very beautiful gardens in Scotland. Allow 1.5 - 2 hours to enjoy the colours, the joy and calmness of lovely gardens. And the sculptures add great excitement to all the places

Amazing gardens and was even lucky enough to see a Red Squirrel! I recommend asking to the statues trail, some are surprisingly hard to find!

Very pleasant & welcoming staff. Lovely walk along path through wooded areas. Path a little challenging at times. Cafe disappointing: self-service machine made drinks & only outside seating.
