Attraction details
Owner description: Opened in 1993 by Prince Edward, Inverness Botanic Gardens, formerly Inverness Floral Hall & Gardens, are an oasis of calm and beauty within walking distance of the city centre. With each new season the outside gardens are an explosion of colour and texture, and borders are planted to demonstrate a wide variety of plants and growing conditions. The impressive glasshouses reveal the drama of plant diversity ranging from the tropical rainforests to arid, heat scorched desert.

A free entry garden run by a charity. Donations are appreciated. It has a tropical hot house and another with cactuses. Nice outside too with plenty of variety. There is also a cafe there.

This is somewhere that I haven't been in years so as we had friends staying with us it was a nice place to visit.
The Gardens aren't big but they are relaxing, just wander around. The greenhouses and hot houses are full of plants, some of them you can purchase. They also sell cut flowers in the cafe for a donation. Talking of the cafe, don't miss it as they do great coffee and cake.
For a free visit, what's not to like. Recommended.

Not the easiest place to find but well worth it! Some very impressive plants, especially the cacti. Lots of plants to buy also and a nice café.

While not very big, this is a lovely garden and greenhouse. The variety is impressive considering the small grounds but lovely nonetheless. There is even a cafe for a snack while you are here.

The botanic gardens are free to visit. There is a cafe with really friendly staff. The weather was nice so we were able to visit outside in the gardens and have drinks which was fantastic. It's quite small so you won't spend hours here, but it is really lovely. The gardens are really well laid out with maps to tell you what each area is.
