This is going to be a real adventure; take the ferry across to the island of Hoy and Longhope, follow the yellow signs to see seven gardens open for the very first time some of them right on the beach with their very own seals! Others on the moors that battle with wind, salt and mountain climate. It is marvellous to see what these previously unseen gardens have in store for lovers of gardens. There is even an ingenious vegetable growing set up. Unmissable!
