These gardens were very interesting with a few late flowers still hanging on. There are a few different areas to explore, but it can be visited in a couple hours rather than needing a whole day. The coffee shop did some great food we had a panini and soup both were lovely and they seem to change filling and flavours... More

Visited Logan Botanical Gardens as part of our Gardens of Galloway Coach tour. An excellent attraction to see if you are in the area. A very pleasant stroll thru the grounds on a beautiful sunny day. Thoughtfully laid out displays.

A beautifully secluded and quiet garden in the south of Scotland. We've lived in Scotland all our long lives and came across it by accident. What a treasure! Our visit was enhanced by beautiful weather but it would be spectacular at any time of year. The delightful ladies in the shop added to our visit greatly as they were truly... More

We visited the garden for the first time in late June and had a wonderful day. Such an impressive display of trees, shrubs and flowers from across the world. We returned again last week expecting there to be much less to see given the time of year. However we were wrong - still an amazing amount of colour across the... More

What a wonderful place to visit, the flowers, plants from all over the world, but the whole is more than the sum of the parts, it was so calming, it should be on prescription.
