I am in no doubt that Crarae is both unique and beautiful - every time I visit I see something new or interesting. Your site does the gardens justice.

It is a beautiful website - the pictures are delightful, I only wish for the opportunity to visit the gardens in person. I was in the area several years ago, but did not know of the existance of the gardens then otherwise I would have visited.

My wife and I have visited Inverary and the Campbell Castle several times but missed seeing your beautiful garden.The pictures of the azeleas and rhodendrums remind me of Oregon whose state bird is the great blue heron which apparently is also found in your garden.We will make it a point to visit the garden on our next visit.

I visited Crarae a few weeks ago, and even in July, without the spectacular color of spring or fall, it was an enchanting place. My thanks to Sir Ilay and Lady Campbell and all the trustees and others involved, for continuing to maintain this international garden treasure.

The gardens are absolutely fabulous. The blue poppies look wonderful and truly appear as if a river. The scents alone are something else.
