Rowena & Stuart's Open Hebridean Garden

The Garden is open for the Summer to visitors from the UK. Sadly, our friends from abroad will not be able to visit until foreign travel restrictions have been lifted which, hopefully, will be later this year.

Please have a look at the precautions we have in place for your COVID safety. It would be appreciated if you were able to prebook your tickets but, if that is not possible, we can accept cash although we are not permitted to give change.

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 bog gardens to raised beds, from shelter to exposed beds. The range of different growing conditions we have created are filled with an abundance of plants, some rare (at least for Lewis) others more common, all wonderful. No garden is complete without its fruit and veg patches, some grown to show standards, and ours keeps us well supplied for most of the year.

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

We have included a map of the garden and some garden views to entice you to visit us. Enjoy.
