Colourful and contrasting flowers at Dunvegan

This evening, I am posting images and information on the luxuriant garden at Dunvegan Castle, the home of the Chief of Clan MacLeod on the north coast of the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands.

Skunk Cabbage

This garden was originally laid out in the 18th century and is backed by an extensive mature woodland.

Here can be found a kaleidoscope of colours with emphasis on lush greens supported by other seasonal flowering plants,

Visitors can also experience the woodland walks, pools and water gardens, burn (stream) and waterfall.

An excellent spot to relax and enjoy in conjunction with a visit to the famous castle.

In viewing the lush plant and tree life bear in mind that Isle of Skye experiences about 52 inches (1325mm) of rain per annum.
