Friends of Crarae

Welcome to the Friends of Crarae website. I hope that it will inspire existing Friends and visitors alike to take an interest in what we do in support of the magnificent gardens at Crarae. I am sure that the site will prove a great forum for ideas and shared experiences, whether these are in the form of photos of their favourite rhododendron, ideas for raising funds for the Garden or offers of practical help in the Garden or the Visitors Centre – we are always looking for volunteers, experienced or unskilled, to assist under the National Trust for Scotland managers and gardeners.

We think this is a great website but we are humble enough to welcome suggestions and ideas for its improvement; don’t hesitate to get in touch.

David Sillar (Chairman)

Crarae is one of Britains finest examples of a Himalayan-style woodland garden. The 50 acre site is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the banks of Loch Fyne in Argyll, Scotland.

The Friends of Crarae was established in April 1986 by Mrs Hersey Robertson and a small group of like-minded individuals concerned with the preservation and enhancement of the historically and botanically important Garden of Crarae.
