Gardens and Designed Landscapes
The Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes is a growing and evolving record of nationally important gardens and designed landscapes across Scotland. The Inventory is compiled and maintained by Historic Environment Scotland and more information is available on their website.
The most common type of site on the Inventory is the estate landscape - the policies associated with an important house or castle, developed by country landowners for both pleasure and productive purposes. Other types of sites on the inventory include: botanic garden collections; urban parks, horiculturalist's gardens and cemeteries.
Within the Highland Council area there are 45 sites included on the Inventory:
