Inverewe Garden, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on Inverewe Garden, near Poolewe in N.W. Scotland. The Garden extends to some 54 acres and is now under the stewardship of Scotland’s National Trust.

The garden was incepted by landowner, Osgood Mackenzie around 1880. By Mackenzie’s death in 1922 the Garden was recognised as one of the country’s great plant collections. Mackenzie’s daughter, Mairi, cared for and develop the garden from 1922 through to transfer to National Trust in 1952.

This rich and diverse collection comprises:

  • Entrance Garden.
  • Drive with large trees.
  • Walled Garden
  • Inverewe House and Herbaceous Border.
  • Big Tree section.
  • Japan section.
  • Peat Banks and Small Pond Garden.
  • Wet Valley.
  • Specialised Walks.
  • Cams Glas or Grey Bay.
  • Jubilee Walk
  • Rhododendron Walk
  • Peace Plot.
  • Bambooselem
