This small tucked-away garden is a hidden treasure. There are some spectacular specimens of trees from around the world, and amazings views along Loch Broom. The garden is well looked after and is a pleasant, quiet sort of place. We are never disappointed.

This little treasure has been gradually restored, and is well worth a visit. There are some fine specimens here, well marked. The pathways are nicely laid out, and the map is quite helpful.

Loved it! We were "stranded" in Ullapool by snow and happened by the forest. Did all of the trails and then some. Beautiful and serene and educational.

Quiet woodland setting, home to a number of species of less common trees and shrubs. Enclosed in a traditional walled garden with a path leading down to the lochside. Well worth a visit.
