About Inverewe Garden

Inverewe Garden is a botanical garden in the Scottish Highlands. It is noted for the breadth of its collection. The garden was created from barren land in 1862 by Osgood Mackenzie on the 850-hectare (2,100-acre) estate bought for him by his mother. In order to provide a wind break and soil, he planted a mixture of large trees and shrubs. Having done so his vision was to grow as many exotic plants as possible; this he achieved until his death in 1922.
