Lip na Cloiche is a small, densely-planted garden on the Isle of Mull, open to the public. Lip na Cloiche garden is situated close to the shoreline of the Isle of Mull, and has stunning views of Loch Tuath and the Isle of Ulva. It is well worth seeing, especially if you are interested in finding out which plants are likely to thrive in the mild local climate. A wide range of such plants is available for sale throughout the year, as well as fresh eggs and many craft items made from locally "found" materials.There is no admission charge.

If we hadn't spotted a flyer for this garden and gone searching for it we might well have driven straight past. An unassuming sign, and a relatively small frontage with room for a couple of cars belies the treasures beyond. Somehow this almost vertical garden...More

What a wonderful garden! And what a lovely welcome from the owner. This was our second visit and almost offensively brief, having totally miscalculated our timings. Nevertheless it was even more wonderful than we remembered, with intriguing plants and brilliant planting combinations, enhanced by the...More
