Barguillean's Angus Garden

Angus garden will be open as usual in 2024.
A woodland garden, under-planted with a large collection of rhododendrons and azaleas, as well as specimen trees and shrubs.
Created in 1957 as a memorial garden by Betty Macdonald of Barguillean for her son Angus, this picturesque nine-acre woodland garden is set around the tranquil shores of Loch Angus in historic Glen Lonan. Whilst famous for its extensive collection of hybrid rhododendrons and azaleas, this glorious garden cleverly retains the natural atmosphere of the landscape. Visitors can enjoy an informal network of paths, lined with spring flowering shrubs and bulbs, through native woodland and by shoreland whilst surrounded by magnificent views of Ben Cruachan and mountains of Glen Etive. This unspoilt, natural setting attracts a wide range of wildlife, and the eleven-acre loch is home to swans and ducks. On the northwest side of the garden overlooking the loch stands Betty’s bell paying tribute to her 40 years of work creating this magical garden. The garden reaches its full glory between April and the end of June but is a place of special tranquillity and charm at all times of the year. Three marked, circular walks from the car park taking between 30 minutes and 1.5 hours. Self-catering cottages available all year round.
