If you love plants and gardens – especially rhododendrons – and have a few like-minded friends, then this trip to the renowned Benmore Botanic Gardens is for you. These gardens are at their absolute best in late spring/early summer when the display of rhododendrons and azaleas is breathtaking, but are beautiful and well worth visiting at any time of year. Departing Rhu at 09:30, the trip takes you past Kilcreggan and onwards to the Holy Loch. A minibus will pick you up at Holy Loch Marina and take you to Benmore Botanic Gardens and pick you up later to return to your boat, about a 10 minute journey each way. Please note, entry to Benmore Botanic Gardens is not included. Departing Holy Loch at 15.50, you can relax on your way home with a glass of Prosecco on the journey back to Rhu.
