to Achamore Gardens
Jewel in the Crown...
Achamore is a rambling, mysterious and beautiful place, full of
surprises and delights. Set in mature and varied woodland, our 54
acre garden hosts an impressive collection of rare rhododendron
, which thrive in Gigha's warm microclimate. They display a
breathtaking array of colour and variety throughout the warmer months,
and give way to an elegant display of shape and form in the colder
months. Achamore is also home to many other tender plants, culminating
in the two acre walled garden, a sensory delight of shape, scent
and colour. Above the walled garden, visitors experience breathtaking
views west across the sea to Islay and Jura – the perfect place
to take in the beauty and grandeur of Scotland's west coast.
regularly host tour groups, who arrive both by coach and cruise
ship. In association with Caledonian MacBrayne we can offer a group
discount for coach tours travelling to Gigha on the twenty minute
ferry crossing from Tayinloan. Tour groups are welcomed with a talk
from one of our gardens team, with a more in-depth tour from our
head gardener available on request.
