Viewpoint in Achamore Gardens
There’s a fabulous view across bays and small islands on the southwestern side of the Isle of Gigha, to Islay on the horizon.
As part of the ongoing restoration of the gardens, conifer trees have been cut back to restore the vista.

Gardens at Dunrobin Castle

Seat of the Earls et Dukes of Sutherland, ce magnifique château avec une influence française se trouve sur la mer du Nord sur la côte est de l’Ecosse à un mille de Golspie. Les jardins formels ont été aménagés en 1850 par Barry, l’architecte qui a construit l’extension victorienne à Dunrobin et aussi aux Chambres du Parlement à Londres.
