A sub-tropical garden woodland created by Sir James Horlick after 1944. It specialises in tender rhododendrons. Horlick was a keen plantsman with a particular interest in Rhododendrons, Azaleas and Camellias. His plant collection became famous. The island of Gigha came into community ownership in 2002 - which led to a period of neglect for the gardens and the creation of an Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust.
