Our garden is south-east facing on the edge of Little Loch Broom. It is a coastal plantsman’s garden with a rich mix of herbaceous borders, trees and shrubs, vegetables, drystone wall planting, South African plants, Mediterranean plants, a wild meadow and stunning views. Many of the plants have been collected from all over the world, and growing them in Durnamuck has provided obvious challenges but with an overall pleasing outcome. Featured on Gardeners’ World (2016), Garden Magazine, The Scottish Field and Country Life in 2018. 2019 saw entries in Gardens Illustrated, Homes & Gardens, and The Beechgrove Garden.

Directions: On the A832, between Dundonnell and Ullapool, take the turning along the single-track road signed Badcaul, continue to the yellow salt bin, turn right, go to the bottom of the hill and 2 Durnamuck is the house with the red roof. There is parking down by the house if needed.

Admission: £5.00, children free

An informal, organic garden on a gently sloping half-acre site. Perimeter hedging has enabled a sheltered, tranquil oasis to be created. Winding paths meander through densely planted borders filled with a diverse range of perennials, annuals and shrubs. The house overlooks a sheltered bay with regular sightings of otters, sea eagles and harbour porpoises. There is a separate vegetable and herb area with a large polytunnel and raised beds. Garden seating in several locations. The garden is situated in an easily reached, particularly quiet and scenic area of Skye.

Directions: From Portree, take the A87 to Uig/Dunvegan. After approximately three miles, take the A850 towards Dunvegan. Six miles on, past the Treaslane sign, look for the red phone box on the right. Turn right on the bend at the signpost for Knott.
