Glenwhan Gardens, Dunragit, by Stranraer.

Although some 50 miles from Kirkcudbright, this garden is worth a special mention and a visit if you are in Galloway. This outstanding 12 acre garden centres round two small lakes with magnificent views across Luce Bay and to the Mull of Galloway. This is a garden for all seasons, where every effort has been made to create colour not only in the Spring when beautiful banks of azaleas and rhododendrons dazzle the visitor, but throughout the summer months when the plantsman may discover many rare gems, ending the season with a flourish of hydrangeas.
