Dunragit

Dunragit is a village on the A75, between Stranraer and Glenluce inDumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland. Dunragit is within the parish of Old Luce, in the traditional county of Wigtownshire. The modern village grew up around the west gate of Dunragit House, an 18th-century country house, though there is evidence of Neolithic settlement in the area. Dunragit Creamery was operated by Nestlé, but this is no longer in use.

The 12-acre (49,000 m2) Glenwhan Garden has been created in Dunragit, since 1979, out of a gorse and bracken covered hillside, inspired by the nearby Logan Botanic Garden and Tresco on the Isles of Scilly. It is open to the public

Glenwhan Gardens

Tel: 01581 400222

Glenwhan Garden has been described as “one of the best newly created gardens in recent times“. Thirty years ago there was nothing but bracken, gorse and willows but careful planting has created a 12 acre garden filled with glorious collections of plants from around the world. There is colour in all seasons and the winding paths, well placed seats, sculptures and water all add to the tranquil atmosphere.

There is a 17 acre moorland wildflower walk, the chance to see red squirrels and magnificent views over Luce Bay, the Mull of Galloway and the Isle of Man. A new tree trail has been collated this year and our Tea-Room is under new management serving delicious home-cooked lunches and teas. Adjoining it you will find a well stocked plant centre for you to browse, and we have a range of plant-propagation courses and events lined up throughout the season. We very much look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful corner of Galloway!
