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, cardamine for the orange tip butterflies, a nettle patch, 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. New in 2018 was a stumpery, beds and another pond.

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 right signposted Torcroft Lodges.
