Overview

Glenwhan Garden and Arboretum near Stranraer in Dumfries and Galloway is a plantswoman's garden for all seasons. In spring and early summer rhododendrons and azaleas are a riot of colour, by mid-summer come roses, rockroses, primulas and iris, and then herbaceous plants carry on through to the magnificent array of hydrangeas in late summer and through to the autumn. Many rare gems may be discovered at Glenwhan whether they are rock scree or the bog loving genera and there is a large and interesting array of trees and shrubs. This really is a peaceful haven with seats placed at strategic viewpoints and winding paths through woodland walks, making it an ideal place to bring the family for a fun day out. The garden also has a 17 acre moorland and wildflower walk adjacent to the gardens, home to red squirrels and peacocks. Don't miss the lovely tree trail which has been devised, listing over 130 genera for the dendrologist (tree lover). Dogs are welcome in the gardens but strictly on leads.
