This is an incredibly beautiful garden, just on the coast road in the West of Mull. Feels like a fantasy gatdem. Small garden centre and lots of advice available from Lucy.

This is a strange place in the best sense: impossibly lush and beautiful, straight up a hill, with extraordinary views. The woman who runs it does ask for contributions, which seems only fair: there is an unbelievable amount of work here.
