About the garden

A private garden with a charming variety of plants arranged across this deceptively spacious residential plot, Leathad Ard is great inspiration for UK gardeners. The grounds are arranged as ‘rooms’, with beautiful views across to East Loch Roag and areas with both sheltered and open aspects, giving visitors a good range of spaces to explore.

The owners’ focus on variety has led to a garden which is full of colour throughout the summer, with herbaceous borders overflowing with flowers around every corner. The hedges which surround most of the site give good protection from the Scottish weather, so that many parts of the grounds feel sheltered and warm even on windy days. There are also a good range of garden types on the site, with everything from bog garden to fruit and veg, wild areas, lawns and raised beds.

How could anyone not give this 5 stars. This is a homely lived in garden with impossible range of plants and home produce. The owners enthusiasm is matched by apologies of narrow paths that are in reality giving a feeling of discovery as you meander. Don't forget to ask for plants to purchase. Hope we return. Thankyou for the Gladiolis Cardinal's.

Brilliant garden, many flowers and vegetables. Lots of little paths leading from one area to another. Would be really fun for children. It just shows what you can do with determination and a lot of time even in the unpromising climate and soil of Lewis.

The gardens were packed with love. Huge variety of plants both ornamental and culinary. The proprietors were very friendly and interesting. Covid compliant.
