Kinlochlaich Walled Garden Appin Argyll PA384BD | Contact Fiona Hutchison

The Gardens surround the historic house and are open for all to enjoy. Like many gardens on the West Coast, the mild climate of the Gulf Stream enables an amazing range of plants to grow and thrive. There are many mature trees, rhododendrons and other rare and ununsual plants around the grounds of Kinlochlaich. The octagonal walled garden was built around 1790 and continues to be a sheltered haven full of plants giving colour and pleasure all year round.

  • Wander through the carpet of bluebells in the  Woodland Walk
  • Admire the species rhododendrons in the Spring Garden
  • Enter through the old garden gate into the Walled Garden with its various established formal beds in one quarter
  • See the espaliered fruit trees against the south facing wall
  • Enjoy the traditional and extensive Vegetable and Fruit gardens.

The walled garden also houses one of the leading plant nurseries in Scotland, containing a very wide selection of plants.  Visit the Kinlochlaich Garden Plant Centre website.

Kinlochlaich Gardens are open under Scotland’s Garden Scheme and are one of a group of 20 gardens, known as the Glorious Gardens of Argyll & Bute.

The Hutchison family have been working in and adding to the various parts of the Gardens for more than 30 years.
