Attadale Gardens 1Attadale Gardens 2Situated on the shores of Loch Carron in Wester Ross with views over the loch to the Isle of Skye, Attadale Gardens have been developed over many years. Attadale House itself was built in 1755 and some of the trees date from that period.

An extensive sculpture collection can be stumbled upon lurking in the undergrowth throughout the gardens.

Part of the 30,000 acre Attadale Estate, these gardens are a great day out.
