main image Inverewe gardens, Ross-shire
Since the renaissance, a garden has been seen as an essential adjunct to a country house.

Some gardens have emphasised pattern, with the plants massed in geometrical shapes. Others have been deliberately informal and picturesque. Often small buildings have been used to catch the eye. The garden is a way of showing man’s control over nature and landscape.

The garden at Inverewe was started in the 1860s. It has a particularly large collection of plants and so is of scientific importance.
