Linn Botanic Gardens

[Linn Botanic Gardens]

Fans of perfectly tended, formal gardens look away now... Linn Botanic Gardens on the peaceful Rosneath Peninsula may have been immaculate once upon a time, but more recently nature seems to have had the upper hand. But there's still beauty in these bushes if you're patient enough to overlook overgrown paths and untidy borders. A map leaflet (usually available upon arrival) and 50 numbered waymarkers guide you around the varied landscape, taking in a glen and waterfall, bamboo garden, ponds, Alpine lawn and rhododendron plantings surrounding a dilapidated old villa, though following the correct route isn't always straightforward. It's a refreshing from the heavily manicured gardens elsewhere in Scotland - but you can't help thinking another set of green fingers might transform the place.
