Gardens - Scotland

Logan Botanic Garden, Port Logan, Dumfries and Galloway


A sub tropical paradise at the SW tip of Scotland


An idyllic position on the Mull of Galloway, this has been described as one of the most exotic gardens in Britain. The warming effect of the gulf stream combined with the protection from winds in a walled garden and woodland shelter belts, allows many sub tropical plants to thrive outdoors. Most come from the southern hemisphere and many are now rare in the wild.

Port Logan Gardens, Dumfries and Galloway

The gardens are an outstation of the Royal Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh and are carefully looked after. Plants are labelled and there are few weeds. They are one of the nicest gardens we have visited. There are Chusum palms and tree ferns.  There is a lily pond as well as eucalyptus groves and a Gunnera bog. The flower borders are carefully planted to provide a succession of colour throughout the year. The bright pink of the Nerine lilies was particularly striking in September and October.
