Lael Forest Garden

A forest park in Wester Ross, the Lael Forest Garden extends for 6.9 ha (17 acres) in the Lael Forest 2 miles (3 km) north northwest of Braemore Junction and 6 miles (10 km) south of Ullapool. Surrounded by commercial forest the garden has been described as a 'tree museum', with specimen trees collected from across the world by successive owners before the Forestry Commission acquired the garden in 1929. There are more than 180 species of shrubs and trees such as Chilean Yew, Corsican Pine, Macedonian Pine, Oregon Maple, Serbian Spruce and several varieties of Rhododendron. The garden includes some old and remarkable examples, but new species are added every year. It is now managed by Forestry and Land Scotland.
