Logan Botanic Garden

Port Logan, Nr. Stranraer DG9 9ND, UK

Home to exotic plants from places as far-flung as South and Central America, Africa, and Australasia, Logan Botanic Garden is a beautiful place to wander and relax amid spectacular flora. Located on the southwestern tip of Scotland, the garden enjoys an almost subtropical climate, allowing plants like the towering, purple-flowered giant viper’s-bugloss—native to the Portuguese island of Madeira—to thrive. Plant lovers will be startled by the range of species that gardeners here coax into full-blossomed life, from palm trees and ferns to eucalyptus and the rhubarb-like gunnera. Stroll through the walled garden to see the fish pond adorned with water lilies, then head to the Logan Conservatory, an elegant, Victorian-style building that houses a variety of tender plants from South Africa.
