Explore Logan Botanical Gardens

Take a walk in paradise at five star Logan Botanic Garden, Scotland's most exotic Garden, and discover plant treasures rarely seen in the United Kingdom

Located on the south-western tip of Scotland, Logan enjoys an almost subtropical climate.  The Garden's avenues and borders feature a spectacular and colourful array of half hardy perennials. The Garden is warmed by the Gulf Stream which enables plants from Australia, New Zealand, South and Central America and Southern Africa to thrive 

Garden features include:

Palm Trees and Tree Ferns - These striking plants form an antipodean forest and create an exotic spectacle for visitors to enjoy

Eucalyptus and Giant Gunnera - Vistors can walk through groves of eucalyptus or stand in the shade of awesome giant rhubarb like gunnera

The Walled Garden - A showcase for exotic plants and the fish pond, adorned with water lilies, adds to the air of tranquility 

Logan Conservatory - The elegant Victorian style Logan Conservatory houses a range of particularly tender exotic plants from South Africa. It is the first all green Glasshouse in the UK

A visit to Logan will fascinate garden and plant enthusiasts and is also ideal for those who simply want to stroll in natural surroundings and enjoy the peace and quiet 

Logan constitutes a specialised part of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh's Living Collection which is grown and maintained for the enjoyment of visitors and also supports internationally important scientific research, education and conservation 

The Garden dates back to 1869 and 100 years later, in 1969, after it was gifted to the nation, it became Logan Botanic Garden, a regional Garden of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
