About Logan Botanic Garden

Located on the south-western tip of Scotland and voted 'Best Garden in the UK' 2021, Logan enjoys an almost subtropical climate. The Garden is warmed by the Gulf Stream which enables plants from Australia, New Zealand, South and Central America and Southern Africa to thrive. The Garden is open on weekends in February for the Scottish Snowdrop Festival 10am-4pm. The Garden is then open daily from 1 March -15 November from 10am-5pm (4pm in November)

Garden features include:

- Palm Trees and Tree Ferns - These striking plants form an antipodean forest and create an exotic spectacle for visitors to enjoy.
- Eucalyptus and Giant Gunnera - Visitors can walk through groves of eucalyptus or stand in the shade of awesome giant rhubarb-like Gunnera.
- The Walled Garden - A showcase for exotic plants and the fish pond, adorned with water lilies, adds to the air of tranquility.
-The Woodland Garden with plants and trees from Chile, Tasmania and many recently collected specimens from the mountains of Vietnam.
