Rowena & Stuart's Open Hebridean Garden
The Garden will be open this year from April 5th, but only for visitors living in the Island Authority area. Please call us before visiting.
Travel throughout mainland Scotland should be permitted by April 26th but it is not clear yet whether this also applies to the Islands. Watch this space when travel restrictions are lifted.
Our 1 acre sloping garden with stunning views over East Loch Roag has evolved along with the shelter hedges into a hidden oasis of colour all summer long. We open the garden under the Scotland's Gardens Scheme to raise money for charity, in our case, the Red Cross, everyday from April till September although we are closed on Sundays.
"An unexpected gardening pleasure" is a frequent comment by visitors to our garden. Numerous hedges divide the garden into a series of connected 'rooms', where every step leads to a new experience as you move from
The entry cost is £4 per head (although a more generous donation to our charity would be happily accepted) with children free. We are open from 10 till 6 every day except Sundays, and there is a plant stall so you can take home a living souvenir of your visit.
Leathad Ard means 'steep hill' in Gaelic and, although not mountain steep, this may restrict access for those with walking difficulties
