Glendoick

Description

Glendoick is the ideal spring day out with a visit to both the gardens and garden centre in April and May. Glendoick was included in the "Independent on Sunday" survey of Europe’s top 50 Gardens with a unique collection of plants from Cox plant-hunting expeditions in China & the Himalaya. Glendoick’s 5 acres includes spectacular rhododendrons, magnolias, meconopsis, grown in the woodland garden, with its burn and waterfalls, the walled garden and the gardens surrounding the house. Many Glendoick plants have been bred by the Cox family, and new unnamed hybrids can be seen in the walled garden. The award-winning Glendoick Garden Centre and Cafe has one of Scotland’s best selections of plants including their world-famous rhododendrons and azaleas as well as a gift shop and foodhall.
