A green oasis, on the west coast just 20 miles from Oban, Arduaine will surprise and delight garden enthusiasts all year round. There has never been a better time to visit Arduaine Garden, at the foot of the Arduaine peninsula on the west coast south of Oban, and to enjoy the delights of the neighbouring Loch Melfort Hotel, originally Arduaine House. The garden, owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland, will surprise and delight garden visitors all year round. This south-facing garden on the Sound of Jura benefits from the warming effect of the North Atlantic Drift and this produces some spectacular displays. Proximity to the sea allows the cultivation of many rare and tender plants from around the globe, with the emphasis on South America and East Asia. The renowned rhododendrons attract enthusiasts from far and wide, and azaleas, magnolias and many other shrubs and trees fill the garden with scent and colour. Blue Tibetan poppies, Chatham Island forget-me-nots and giant Himalayan lilies are just part of the perennial collection.
