The gardens were quite nice and we booked a weeks stay (from Saturday to Saturday) in the Laich cottage which is owned by the same owner of the gardens, we found the cottage (self-catering) quiet and secluded just at the side of the gardens, however, when we arrived in the cottage we found the seating in the living room dusty and the dressing table in the twin room very dusty, we contacted the owner and was told that she had done the cleaning and must have missed that and whilst this was an explanation it did not make us feel reassured.
However, the next day when I dropped my medicine tablet holder on the floor of the main bedroom I noticed just how bad the whole area was and under the Covid restrictions in Scotland at the time and even now we were very unhappy and when we saw the owner on the Tuesday she was not very helpful or understanding when we said we were leaving the next morning but she did offer to try and re-let the property, this did not happen and our loss was in the region of £425 for the last three nights.
I emailed the owner after a couple of weeks and was given a lame excuse for not re-letting so reluctantly feel the need to write this review as the cottage had so much potential.
Photos show what we were met with.

As it was a very damp day, we decided to head to the local garden centre rather than staying in. Wished we hadn’t! Such a weird place. Totally deserted, creepy atmosphere, no prices on any of the plants, no cafe, strange toys everywhere and just generally eerie. Lowlight of our trip as it was a total waste of time.

Visited on a rather damp day and expected a little more from this centre.Place was deserted, we only saw one lady who was very pleasant and talked all about the gardens.
In general it is very run down with little evidence of care attention in many places and children’s playthings and tyres etc lying around.They do have lots and lots of plants so if your prime aim is for certain plants you could very likely find them here.There is a recommended charge of £3 per person if you do not buy any plantsThere are no facilities,ie Cafe toilets etc.
If passing and you are very keen to buy plants may be worth calling but that’s as far as it goes.

Hi Sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. We are child friendly so that does entail all the toys you saw! We do have a toilet but not a café and usually direct folk to the very good café just along the road. We do just concentrate on plants.

Great Centre with an amazing selection of plants, trees etc., way beyond most establishments offerings. But it also has an amazing and beautifully laid out Garden to walk round and perhaps get inspiration for your own.

Having over the last few months decided we would like a garden that was less grass and more interesting we have been visiting Kinlochlaich Garden Centre regularly and have never been disappointed. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and patient and are interested in the type of garden you have. They ask questions! They advise on what would be suitable and what wouldn’t for your type of garden. A good few times We have suggested one type of plant but have been pointed towards a different one better suited for where we would want it planted and without fail that advice has been correct.
Invariably we leave with a car boot load of plants. Everything we have bought has been bigger and stronger than we would have found in most other garden centres and to date nothing has been lost as they have all been strong and healthy plants. Yes, we could have gone there and selected a few plants and paid for them but I would recommend asking for advice if, like us, you are fairly novice at this garden lark.
I can’t recommend Kinlochlaich highly enough,

It was a peaceful Sunday morning I visited in this garden. I wanted to go to see the woodland garden and plants. There were raindrops on the plants, birds were singing and cow mooing farer on. Very friendly staff.

Nice Centre with helpful staff and a good selection, given the time of year when many centres close.
Quite large grounds so a nice wander round too 😁

This isn’t a typical garden centre....thank god. If you’re looking for knowledgable advice and specialised hardy plants at great value, then look no further. None of the usual supermarket type plants here which die before they get home, this is an espalished family garden centre set amongst a walled garden, surrounded by specialist mature species of all descriptions, which at any time of the year will reveal superbly unique and amazing colours, foliage’s and designs.
