Open Day with Plant Sale: Saturday 3 June, 2pm - 5pm (2023)


In a magnificent Highland glen, at 1200 feet above sea level, Glenkyllachy offers a glorious garden of shrubs, herbaceous plants, rhododendrons, trees and spectacular views down the Findhorn River.  There are some rare specimens and a recently planted arboretum. Rhododendrons and bulbs flower in May/June, herbaceous plants bloom through July/August with glorious autumn colours in September and October.  Original sculptures and a Highgrove-inspired wall provide year-round interest.  Featured on Beechgrove in 2018.  We took advantage of Lockdown in 2020 to re-assess existing plant schemes and create new borders and paths. We have also extended the garden with a 'wild area' blending the garden into the beautiful birch and juniper natural hillside.

Directions: Turn off the A9 at Tomatin and take the Coignafearn/Garbole single-track road down the north-side of the River Findhorn, there is a cattle grid and gate on the right 500 yards AFTER the humpback bridge and the sign to Farr.

Admission: £5.00, children free
