We are a small market garden in West Ardnamurchan growing and selling produce to local residents and visitors to the area. The Lighthouse at Ardnamurchan Point has 3 wonderful walled gardens – originally used by the lighthouse keepers for crops and livestock – now currently empty – which we are planning to develop in partnership with the the lighthouse trust. There is a disused well in one of the gardens and a stone clamp/cold store in another. It is as far west as you can get on the British mainland with wonderful views and wildlife, and whilst it benefits from the mild temperatures of the gulf stream it is a windy spot.
If anyone has experience of lighthouse gardens, we would love to know. We are also interested in any information that will help us explore the heritage of such gardens as this is something we would like to highlight as part of the visitor information for the site. Any thoughts or suggestions will be gratefully received. Many thanks
