Opened in 1993 by Prince Edward, Inverness Botanic Gardens, formerly Inverness Floral Hall & Gardens, are an oasis of calm and beauty within walking distance of the city centre. With each new season the outside gardens are an explosion of colour and texture, and borders are planted to demonstrate a wide variety of plants and growing conditions. The impressive glasshouses reveal the drama of plant diversity ranging from the tropical rainforests to arid, heat scorched desert.

The botanic garden can be rather difficult to find, but if you find them, they are nice. It is a very small botanic garden and I would not recomend going there on its own. However if you are walking along the River Ness the botanic...More

Wonderful small garden - with excellent café - great green houses and a very colourful display outside. Could do with better road signs to the gardens from the main road.

This small botanical garden is a hidden gems. An absolute masterpiece in garden design. Be sure to catch the butterfly garden which is nothing less than transcendent. Bring your camera.
