1st April - 31st May | Dawn to dusk every day
Glenarn is a special private garden to visit, early in the year with masses of colour and flowers from early April.
This year it is especially floriferous as all the big-leaved species and hybrids are covered.

Glenarn is positioned in a sheltered hollow, close to the Clyde with wonderful old rhododendrons from the time of the famous plant collectors as well as many new introductions and a breath-taking collection of magnolias. Explore the glen for dramatic views, the low and high-level paths let you see the flowers from below and above the huge plants.

Small treasures such as erythroniums, primulas and meconopsis can be found in the Rock Garden together with dwarf rhododendrons, daphne and other shrubs.
There will be a special open day with plant sale on Sunday 28 April and cream teas. See the website for details.
