A garden in the Scottish Highlands "full of intriguing details" has been named one of the best in the UK to visit in early spring.

Introducing the list of British gardens, The Guardian said: "In the midst of winter with its low grey skies, the scents and colours of embryonic spring are a welcome morale booster.

"These gardens will offer spectacular views over the coming months, as banks of delicate snowdrops, and armies of budding daffs, bluebells and tulips return."

The Scottish garden dubbed one of the best to visit in early spring

The garden in Scotland named one the best to visit in early spring was Attadale Gardens in Wester Ross.

The Guardian said: "Spring comes late in the Highlands. When these gardens open at Easter, daffodils, primroses and catkins are pale-gold harbingers of the bold candelabra primulas, irises, lilies and azaleas that will flower in the weeks that follow.

"Attadale won RHS Partner Garden of the Year for Scotland in 2023. The gardens are full of intriguing details: a spectacular tree fern in a sunken fern garden, bronze birds and animals, bridges, thickets of bamboo and, after the spring rains, seasonal waterfalls over mossy, creeper-covered cliffs.
