Abriachan Garden Nursery is a very special kind of place. It's probably what the tourist brochures would call a hidden gem.
The garden nursery has a wide range of local plants that will grow in this climate and all are very cheap compared with the big garden centres.
The secret to this garden nursery is the garden walks (with an honesty box for admission charges). I would never have imagined that this place existed on the banks of the loch. It is a fabulous garden on the side of the hill with lots of surprises around every turn (I won't spoil it by telling all the details). It is very steep however and you have to be reasonably fit to walk around. The climb is however well worth it when you see the views.
Don't miss it the next time you are driving past.
My favourite Scottish Garden, I come back time and time again and have always got to put the seats down in the back of the car to fit in all plants I buy.
I love how the garden feels each season - always lush and moist and inspiring, and always with the view of the loch.
Take your waterproof jacket, it always seems to rain when i go there, not that i mind, gives me an excuse to have a hot chocolate and take Don's ear off about hostas in the shed.
