Discover the Stunning Crarae Garden
Crarae Gardens stands amongst the exotic trees and shrubs, listening to the tumbling waterfalls of the burn, one could almost imagine one is in the Himalayas, rather than Argyll. The informal hillside layout of mature woody plants radiating out from the burn creates a wonderfully natural effect. The garden was created in 1912 and includes a National Collection of Nothofagus, or southern beech, as well as superb examples of acer, sorbus, eucryphia and eucalyptus. It´s a magical spot at any time of year, with the earlier flowers of countless rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and magnolias being replaced later in the season by the rich tints of foliage and fruit.
