Un jardin Himalayen en Ecosse / An Himalayen garden in Scotland – Crarae Garden, Scotland

Please scroll down for the English version

Le dernier endroit que nous avons visité lors de nos vacances en Ecosse fut le jardin de Crarae. Ce jardin est une propriété du National Trust Scotland mais vu que nous sommes membres du National Trust England nous avons pu le visiter gratuitement.

Créé en 1912 Crarae garden offre en plus d’une magnifique vue sur le Loch Fyne une incroyable collection de plantes, fleurs et arbres représentant l’écosystème himalayen.

Il y a différents sentiers à emprunter qui permettent de découvrir le jardin sous plusieurs angles de vues. Nous avions choisi le plus long qui était d’environ 1h et qui nous permis de voir la totalité du jardin.

La végétation dense, les arbres majestueux et les cascades égaillent cette forêt. Le bas du jardin est composé de parterres de fleurs et plantes où il est possible de pique niquer.

Dans l’ensemble nous avons bien aimé ce jardin. Nous l’avons visité avant de repartir vers Manchester. Nous vous recommandons d’y aller une demi journée avant ou après la visite de Inveraray.

The last place we visited during our vacation in Scotland was the Crarae Garden. This garden is owned by the National Trust Scotland but as we are members of the National Trust England we were able to visit it free of charge.

Created in 1912 Crarae garden offers in addition to a magnificent view on the Loch Fyne an incredible collection of plants, flowers and trees representing the Himalayan ecosystem.

There are different paths to explore that allow you to discover the garden from several angles of view. We chose the longest one which was about 1 hour and which allowed us to see the entire garden.


Dense vegetation, majestic trees and waterfalls make this forest a treasure. The bottom of the garden is composed of flowerbeds and plants where it is possible to picnic.

Overall we liked this garden. We visited it before returning to Manchester. We recommend you go for half a day before or after the visit of Inveraray.

  1. Firstly, I read this post in French – it’s been a while since I’ve read anything French, and save for the odd word, I think I managed the translation in my head pretty well 👍🏻 Second, what a beautiful garden! I’ve never heard of this before now, but if I’m ever up at Loch Fynwy I’d love to visit x


  2. Loved testing my GCSE French 🙂 I live in the south of England and have never visited Scotland but would love to!
