Maolachy's Garden

Lochavich, by Kilmelford PA35 1HJ
Georgina Dalton
T:01866 844212
Three acres of woodland garden with a tumbling burn — created in a small glen over 40 years. At an altitude of 450 feet and two weeks behind the coastal changes, the growing season is shorter. By not struggling to grow tender or late species, the owner can enjoy those that are happy to grow well here and give everyone much pleasure. Snowdrops, followed by early rhododendrons, masses of daffodils in many varieties, bluebells, wildflowers and azaleas, primulas and irises. A productive vegetable patch and tunnel feed the gardener and family.

Directions: Ignore SatNav. A816 to Kilmelford. Turn uphill between shop and church, signposted Lochavich 6, steep and twisty road with hairpin bend shortly after leaving village, check for passing places. Maolachy Drive is four miles from village. Cross three county cattle grids; after the third ignore the forestry tracks to left and right. Continue downhill towards Loch Avich, and Maolachy is up on the left, first house after Kilmelford.
