ARDTORNISH OPEN FOR THE SCOTTISH RHODODENDRON FESTIVAL

1st April - 31st May | dawn to dusk every day
Ardtornish a hill garden that stretches over 25 acres, a mixture of formal and informal plantings that bear testament to a family tradition in gardening.

Visitors come to Ardtornish to enjoy the beauty of an outstanding natural landscape, with the contrast between long vistas across sea loch and open hill and closer views of wooded glen, river and waterfall. The original planting of the site in the late nineteenth century was intended to be enjoyed by approach from the sea, with the towers of Ardtornish House springing from a semi-circle of trees, mainly evergreen. The plantings were designed to showcase the colour, form and architecture of a range of exotic species in a manner that complimented the natural features and flora of the coastal and hill terrain. The garden supports a particularly fine collection of rhododendrons that can be found in the Rhododendron Glen and Cinnabarinum Glen, together with yellow and orange azaleas, the latter of which are part of the original nineteenth century planting.
