● Size Ap­prox­i­mately eight acres of hill­side gar­den on the edge of Loch Linnhe with views across to Glen­coe and Ben Ne­vis ● Alti­tude Some 200ft above sea level ● Soil Rich al­lu­vial soil in front of the house, but just a thin layer of peat in the main part of the gar­den. Where there is soil, it’s very acidic ● Cli­mate 120in–130in of rain a year: ‘not as bad as Fort Wil­liam’. Frosts are in­fre­quent, but ‘wind is the main en­emy of the big-leaved rhodo­den­drons—if they lose their leaves, they die’
