Description: This garden is about three-quarters of an acre on a hillside overlooking Loch Meiklie in Glen Urquhart. It is a wild garden, with its own character and style. There are weeds and cardamine for the orange-tip butterflies, but most of all there are plants in profusion from acer, anemone and astrantia to veronicastrum, verbascum, weigela and water lilies. A natural stream comes into the garden and meanders into various small ponds. In the spring there are masses of bog primula of all types and colours. There is a fern bed, a rockery, herbs, wooded area, a stumpery and another pond nearby.

Directions: From Inverness turn right at Drumnadrochit and go towards Cannich. After four miles, sign Balnain, there is a very sharp right-hand bend with a high retaining wall on the right. At the end of the wall take the turning to the right signposted Torcroft Lodges.
