Home > Explore > Moray > Burgie Arboretum

This picturesque part of the Burgie Estate has more than 600 acres of trees, flowers and bushes.

It offers a mix of full grown trees and hundreds of recently planted varieties. It’s a very pleasant walk around a woodland and water..

It has a good collection of rhododendrons, Sorbus, alder, birch and Tilia but also includes many unusual trees from around the world.

The arboretum, first created in 2005, is zoned into geographic areas and species type. It includes a Japanese Garden, bog garden, bog wood, loch and quarry garden. Work is ongoing and most plants are grown by hand from seed propagated in the Georgian greenhouse.

Directions: Leave Forres on the A96 towards Elgin. After four miles, there is a sign for ‘Burgie Mains’ on the right. Turn into this road and travel for about a mile. The sign for the arboretum is about a mile along this road, behind a house, and easy to miss.

Entry is by donation.
