Linn Botanic Gardens

The Linn gardenwill be open on occasional weekends for 2024. Please see Scotland's Gardens Scheme for details.
Linn Botanic Gardens are situated at the head of Cove Bay on the west side of Rosneath peninsula. Over the water to the south are the hills of Arran and to the west the hills of the Cowal peninsula.

The development of the present gardens dates from 1970 and they now house a diverse collection of temperate plants. Features include a burn with waterfalls, formal and informal ponds, an open heath for New Zealand plants and a collection of insect catching plants. The centre of the gardens is dominated by a substantial cliff enabling fine views over much of the plantings. Among the more notable collections are ferns, bamboos, Magnolias and Rhododendrons.
