Ardkinglas Woodland Gardens are open all the year round from dawn till dusk with a variety of walks to suit all interests and levels of fitness. Ardkinglas Woodland Gardens cover 25 acres of hillside lying in a naturally sheltered pocket near the mouth of the River Kinglas, surrounded by wild Highland scenery. The Gardens are famous for the mature Champion trees (including the tallest tree in the UK and the mightiest conifer in Europe) and an exceptional collection of rhododendron. A woodland lochan, ancient mill, scriptorium and a very visible and thriving population of rare Red Squirrels add to the attractions of the walks. To find out what can be enjoyed in the Woodland Gardens at any time of the year, see the calendar. The beauty and sense of history in the garden will appeal to all visitors and the outstanding plant collection will delight those with more specialist knowledge. Beyond the upper end of the Gardens lies a route to a further network of wilder woodland walks. Download a map of the Woodland Garden Walk.
