Ardkinglas Woodland Garden

On the shores of Loch Fyne in Argyll, Ardkinglas Woodland Garden is home to one of the tallest trees in Scotland, a 'monster' silver fir, and a beautiful collection of rare and unusual trees and shrubs, including many Rhododendrons, Magnolias, Rowans and Maples. In 2012 NTCS commissioned a new management plan for the woodland garden, and in 2013 funded a new suite of interpretation highlighting the champion trees. In early 2015, NTCS secured funding on behalf of the Ardkinglas Estate to undertake a broad range of remedial tree works, in response to the loss of several trees, and damage sustained, during recent winter storms.
