We are delighted to welcome small coach parties by prior arrangement at Ardtornish Estate and many have already made the journey to visit our gardens. Admission to the gardens is available only for small and medium sized coaches due to access limitations on our single track road.
When here, the 30 acres within the fence can be freely explored by visitors, who can admire the vegetation, plants & wildlife, see the view from different angles, and rest on the thrones of local oak, carved by the artist in wood, Jim Partridge.
We have a small Gift Shop & Information Centre in the Estate Square which is open from 9.00 am to 3.00 pm Monday to Friday and 9.00 am to 10.00 am on Saturdays. The shop boasts a variety of local artisan crafts including our own Ardtornish tweed items. Practical goods include maps, midge repellent, fishing flies, and postcards.
We sell books of local interest – including Faith Raven’s book about the Ardtornish Garden, Prof. Peter Warren’s book about the marbles at Ardtornish House, a range of Sarah Raven’s cookery and botanical books, and Christopher Bacon’s book about almost fifty years at Inninmore.
There is a free to use broadband PC & Wifi hotspot for use while the shop is open, and a post box at the entrance.
Catering can be arranged in Ardtornish House for anything from tea & homebaking through to a seated lunch.
Admission to the garden is charged at £4.00 per person and we can offer Tea, Coffee & Homebaking in our Drawing Room for an additional £4.50 per person.
If you would like to arrange regular visits to Ardtornish, we are able to offer incentives so please do get in touch.
