Ardkinglas gardens

15 minutes before Inverary,  Ardkinglas Woodland Garden is open all the year round from dawn till dusk with a variety of walks to suit all interests and levels of fitness. Ardkinglas Woodland Garden covers 25 acres of hillside lying in a naturally sheltered pocket near the mouth of the River Kinglas, surrounded by wild Highland scenery. The gardens are famous for the mature Champion trees (including the mightiest conifer in Europe) and an exceptional collection of rhododendron. A woodland lochan, ancient mill, scriptorium and a very visible and thriving population of rare Red Squirrels add to the attractions of the walks.  

The Gruffalo trail  uses boards showing selected extracts from the Scots version of the famous book to link the story to the setting of this special corner of the Woodland Garden.
