Achamore Gardens

Exotic garden on Scots island is blessed by the Gulf Stream
The island of Gigha lies three miles from the western coast of the Mull of Kintyre and amongst its fertile fields, many edged by white, sandy beaches that are washed by the Gulf Stream, sits one of Scotland’s most fascinating gardens. Achamore was begun in the 1940s by Colonel Sir James Horlick who recognised that the island’s mild climate would allow exotic plants to flourish.
