I am enquiring about a forest or garden that I heard from and yet I can't seem to find it on my internet searches. I did a tour of western Scotland about 10 years ago. We were on our way to the Isle of Skye from Glasgow and the guide mentioned this forest, where the laird had a Canadian wife, so he decided to plant canadian trees, such as maple trees and Douglas fir. The guide said it was the only place in Scotland to have a boreal forest, so it seemed quite unique.
However, we did not visit the site and I did not note the name down. I would very much like to find it again and visit. Does this place rings any bells?
Thank you for your help !
