Kilmun Arboretum

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Kilmun Arboretum was originally planted with almost 300 different species by the Forestry Commission as a test station in the 1930s, to see which trees would grow well in the conditions here. It is now part of a project run by the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh to produce seed from endangered species to enable them to be grown elsewhere. This circuit combines the two waymarked trails that explore the arboretum to provide a short walk, with nearly 160 species of tree on view.
