Logan Botanic Garden

Logan Botanic Garden is in the Rhinns of Galloway Peninsula, Dumfries and Galloway. One of the reasons we were down that way was so that the good lady could visit.

The climate there is quite benign, warmed by the Gulf Stream, hence tree ferns:-

Just after the entrance there is an Australasian area which looks fairly weird in Scottish terms:-

And a pond with newts. I don’t recall ever seeing newts before:-

Tucked away in one corner of the garden was this tower, the remains of Castle Balzieland (see here):-
