  • Arduaine Garden

    Arduaine Garden is closed until further notice, to allow staff to carry out essential forestry work necessary for safe access to the public.

    The work to reopen the garden will be carried out in two stages.
    The first stage of this work will enable the lower part of the garden to reopen to the public. We anticipate that this could take months and the lower garden may not open again until the end of summer.
    The second stage which will allow the rest of the garden to be opened will not be completed until 2023.

    An oasis of soft hues, fresh textures and striking foliage, Arduaine is the place to come for a deep breath of calm. The garden lies on a rocky promontory at the head of the Sound of Jura and was started in 1898. Arduaine perfectly reflects the curiosity about foreign travel and appetite for the exotic from the late 1800s. Come and explore the rarities, warmed by the North Atlantic Drift, and enjoy wonderful coastal views.
