Prince Charles and Camilla visited Attadale Gardens, Wester Ross, earlier this year but there was no special welcome or red carpet for us when we visited today on our trip around the Far North. Created in the late 19th century it is very much a woodland garden but was transformed after the 1980 storms into a ‘painter’s garden’, designed to frame the views of Skye and the surrounding hills. Streams, waterfalls and pools add movement and although we missed the meconopsis, candelabra primula and rhododendrons there was still much to enjoy, especially the overriding smell of damp greenery and pine needles.
