then take the B7085, Port Logan Bay road.
With an exceptionally mild climate, due to the warm Gulf Stream, this allows a colourful array of southern hemisphere plants to thrive outdoors which would be difficult to grow elsewhere.
It is set in a walled garden which today contains tree ferns, cabbage palms and many more tender perenials.
An award winning licenced Salad Bar, shop, plants sales area and facilities for the disabled.
If I had to be critical it would be that there is no tree cover for dogs left in the car (guide dogs only allowed in the garden). Although I was told on one visit that they will allow a vehicle into the grounds, where there is more shade, but only in special circumstances. Also the gravel pathways can be a little dificult for wheelchair disabled.
There is many more places to see close by, slow down, look about you, you do not know what you might be missing.
For example, along the A716 but
before Logan Botanical Gardens
it is easy to miss Sandhead a popular, but
not to popular spot for visitors wanting a large flat green to play
games with their children and which gives access to the sea, there is
also a caravan holiday park.
Still further along the road on the right is a sign to the Kirkmadrine Inscribed Stones, it is not a large site but some of the stones date from AD600 (oldest christian monuments in Scotland outside Whithorn) and are displayed in a glass-fronted porch of a late 19th century burial chapel.
Finally, there is Ardwell House and garden , all 3 places are within close proximity of each other and your intended destination Logan Botanical Gardens.
