What each of the Gardens of Galloway all have in common is passion and location – everything else is beautifully unique. So we thought it was a good idea to encourage our visitors to explore our neighbours’ gardens to reveal the tremendous variety of landscaping, planting and ideas that have been brought to life in this small corner of Scotland. Thus the idea of the Gardens of Galloway was born.
The close proximity of the gardens make visiting two or even three in a day a realistic pleasure, and for many of our visitors, particularly serious gardeners or those studying horticulture, experiencing different several gardens in a short space of time gives a wonderful insight into differing approaches and styles.
Five of the six gardens take part in the Gardens of Galloway Passport, offering 10% off entrance fees once your passport is validated by visiting one of the gardens and collecting a stamp (Logan House Gardens do not currently take part due to an automated ticketing system). Dunskey Gardens, Castle Kennedy Gardens, Glenwhan Gardens, Ardwell Gardens and Logan Botanic Gardens all offer 10% off entrance fees when you show your validated passport and, if you collect stamps from all five gardens, you’ll be entered into a prize draw for free entry to the Gardens of Galloway throughout 2012.
To take advantage of the Gardens of Galloway Passport simply pick up the card and have it validated at the first garden you visit, then present this at the other gardens to receive your 10% discount.
So go on, visit them all!
