Ormsary is on the shore of Loch Caolisport looking across to Islay and Jura. The house policies are resplendent in spring with bluebells and daffodils under fine oak trees. There are woodland gardens with azaleas, rhododendrons and a collection of trees and shrubs. The walled garden, which has evolved over a couple of centuries, is on two levels. The top half is a kitchen garden producing plants, fruit and vegetables for the house; a winter garden and Muscat of Alexandria vinery have been heated by hydroelectric power for a 100 years. A magnificent Polylepis australis beckons to the lower 'secret garden' with its lawn, roses, magnolias and long mixed border. It opens onto the banks of Ormsary Water. There are woodland walks accessed through the upper woodland garden.

Directions: Take the A82 road from Lochgilphead towards Campbeltown for four miles, then take B8024 signed to Kilberry and travel ten miles and follow signs to the Estate office to collect directions to the garden.
