Explorers Garden Entry

Explorers Garden

Scotland has produced some of the world’s most successful plant hunters and this truly unique Garden celebrates their contribution to the way our gardens look today.

Conceived as a Theatricum Botanicum, and built in conjunction with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in the late 1990s, the Explorers Garden offers stunning spaces for art performance including the Pagoda, the Pavilion and the Amphitheatre.  

This predominantly woodland garden is a rare opportunity to experience art in nature, in a stunning Highland location  and  definitely one for your theatre to-do list.  The Garden is also available for private events and makes a breath-taking wedding venue.
