The woodland gardens at Achnacloich overlook Loch Etive, with Ben Cruachan eastwards and the Island of Mull westwards. The 19th century walled garden, terraces and three small ponds are a fine setting for late 1820s Scots pine. Serious planting began in 1952, with rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias, a growing eucryphia collection and varieties of trees and shrubs - many from the Southern hemisphere. Best viewed spring to end June with attractive woodland walks in summer months and good autumn colours. Working single-handed for 20 years, Charlie Milne, the gardener has been able to cut out the ponticum rhododendrons as all the planting can now provide the necessary shelter.
