Ard Daraich Garden

Ard Daraich Gardens

Overlooking Ben Nevis and Glen Coe Ard Daraich is the former holiday home of Contance Spry set in 8 acres of Hill Garden with an important collection of Rhododendrons, Acers and other rare trees and shrubs.

For the last 40 years at Ard Daraich Gardens we have been building a collection of ericaceous plants, with over for hundred different Rhododendron species and hybrids, and many Acers and Sorbus trees - all in all a collection that is being noticed by specialists.  The land opposite the house  has now become an interesting woodland with Styrax, Davidia, Liquidamber and Stachyurus. The house is defined in front with a Camellia (Debbie) hedge, which in the spring is spectacular.
