Visit back to Inverewe Gardens after 40 yrs Part 1


By Scotkat


It was so nice to go back and see the gardens after 40 yrs .

The first time we saw it it was a private garden but now its owned by the National Trust.

We did the tour this time with a guide and also saw a lot more of the garden we did the last time .

We were back a few times as were staying at the stunning Inverewe camp site

Hi Kath, lovely gardens, and blue sea, looks like you had good weather again.
The shrub in the second photo, looks like Eucalyptus ficifolia, but that is only hardy to 40f, so unless it stays warm there in winter, I don't think it can be, Derek.

Yes it s Derek.

And also thought this may be of interest to you.
