Welcome to Attadale Gardens

We are now open for the 2014 season and look forward to welcoming you.


Started by Baron Schroder in the late 19th century, hill paths meander through 20 acres of conifers and rhododendrons.

Totally transformed after the 1980 storms by owner Nicky Macpherson, it is an artist’s garden designed to frame the magnificent views of Skye and the surrounding hills. Waterfalls, Monet bridges, meconopsis, bamboo and candelabra primula are reflected in dark pools. Sculpture lurks in unexpected places.

Latest additions and developments

Roe deer by Hamish Mackie 2014

The box hedges in the kitchen garden suffered from box blight and have been replaced with ilex crenata. The meconopsis or Blue Himalayan poppy collection has been growing year by year, and they can be seen throughout the garden.  

The bronze roe deer is a new sculpture by Hamish Mackie, who also made the running cheetah. It has been placed near the gate to the kitchen garden to surprise visitors and where it can also be seen from the kitchen window by the owners Nicky and Ewen Macpherson when they do the washing up.
