Tea Room 

The Tea Room will open fully from the 24th of April, 2021.

Whether for a quick coffee, a light lunch, a delicious cream tea or pudding following your picnic on the lawn in front, our Tea Room is always a delightful experience.

Charmingly situated, it offers unparalleled views of the Castle Kennedy ruins throughout the season. Choose from an ever changing selection of soups, jacket potatoes, toasted sandwiches, cakes and drinks. Using locally sourced fresh ingredients in traditional recipes from Lochinch Castle, delicious home-made food is available for all the family. Download our Tea Room Menu here.

The Tea Room also offers changing facilities and high-chairs, and is open during regular opening hours of the Gardens.

Gift Shop

Our Gift Shop sells original gifts, accessories, crafts, books and souvenirs, including a detailed souvenir guidebook and postcards of the Gardens, locally sourced where possible.

Binoculars and bird books are available to hire throughout the season, and a free wheelchair is also available for visitors to use.


Plant Centre

Situated next to the Gift Shop is our Plant Centre with a wide selection of plants, including our famous rhododendrons, which we hope you will enjoy growing at home. Many of the plants on offer have been grown by us from seed collected in the Gardens, and possibly from stock brought to this country over 100 years ago.
