Just came back from our hols at Loch ness. We were expecting it to be very touristy but it wasn't, we had the most amazing time and fell in love with the place.
Our friend who we visited up there in Foyers said it snows for 6 months of the year and it's very hard to plant a garden there as the soil is very poor, rocky and shallow.
We could see how shallow it was as trees tend to come down very easily during storms.
I'm wondering how you garden in conditions like that, we are planning to spend more time up there in a couple of years as we can both work from home so can pretty much live anywhere.
I suppose raised beds are an option for shrubs, are there any Highland people on here who have successfully managed to plant a nice garden?
