On the community-owned Isle of Gigha, there are 54 acres of Achamore Gardens. The warming influence of the North Atlantic Drift allows an even greater array of sub-tropical and temperate plants to grow happily out doors. The present compartment woodland layout was created by Col Horlick and his assistant Kitty Lloyd Jones. These woodland compartments give a backdrop to allow the vast number of rhododendron to grow and flourish. Plant genera from all over the world are represented within the gardens from the tender to the hardy.
