Leathad Ard Open Gardens Charity

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.

From wet to dry, sunny to shady, the different conditions created by using shelter and raised beds has permitted a wide range of plants to be grown, a plantaholics dream. Hedges have divided the garden into a number of smaller spaces interconnected by grass and gravel paths so that a new, exciting view is revealed at every turn. Beds include herbaceous borders; bog gardens; cutting garden; grass garden; exposed beds; patio; a new pond and fruit and vegetable patches some of which are grown for showing.

There is also a plant stall selling only our own home produced plants. A full tour with Stuart will take about 2 hours.

The garden is open under Scotland’s Gardens (www.scotlandsgardens.org), Scotland’s national charity garden scheme, and all donations go to this charity, 40% being passed to our designated charity, The Red Cross, and the remainder to Scotland’s Gardens own supported charities.

The garden is open from June until the end of August from 1:45 – 6 everyday except Fridays and Sundays. Donations are welcome, with a recommended minimum donation of £4 per person.
