Achamore Gardens

Achamore Gardens

Created by Colonel Sir James Horlick with the assistance of Gardener Kitty Lloyd Jones in 1944, Achamore Gardens is the home of Horlickā€™s renowned Rhododendron and Camellia Collection. Flourishing in Gigha's warm microclimate, the 54-acre Gardens hosts many notable and unusual plants and trees from around the world.

The woodland walks with Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Camellias, New Zealand tree ferns, Hydrangeas and Fuchsias complement the walled gardens with its tender exotics, herbaceous borders and a Bamboo Maze for all to enjoy. The Garden Viewpoint has stunning exposed views over to the islands of Islay and Jura while the pond area offers a secluded oasis.
