Admire a horticultural transformation at An Ceardach Garden
Three miles outside Campbeltown, on the Kintyre Peninsula lies
An Ceardach Garden
. Once a blacksmith's cottage, its five acres of abandoned grazing has been transformed from bracken and hazelwood into a magnificent garden. The garden was transformed by local volunteers and can be viewed by appointment from April-October between 10am-4pm, daily, in return for a small donation to charity. It has been designed so
that there's something to see at each time of year. From meadows of cheerful daffodils in spring, to carpets of bluebells come early summer, and from November to August, several hundred varieties of Rhododendron shrubs will be in bloom. There are some beautiful sculptures and water features to admire as well as the spectacular views across to the mountains of Arran.
