Inverness Floral Hall is a sub-tropical oasis in the heart of the Highlands with greenhouses, cactus house, landscaped gardens, tropical fish pond, sensory raised flower beds and cafe.
The floral hall, gardens and cafe is a unique visitor attraction that offers a tranquil break amidst beautiful floral displays. It was opened in 1993 by Prince Edward and has been inspiring local gardeners and visitors from every continent ever since.

The climatically controlled hothouse features winding pathways along which you can discover a superb array of subtropical plants, a cascading waterfall and a pool full of friendly Koi Carp. The adjoining cactus house shows an award winning range of cacti and succulents with many specimens provided and maintained by the Inverness Cactus & Succulent Society.

The outdoor garden, which is sheltered by a large stone wall, presents innovative colourful displays including mixed trees and shrubs, heathers, herbs, seasonal and mixed plantings all within a fine range of raised and ground level beds. Younger ones will be sure to find, hidden among the shrubs, the teddy bears, mole and tortoise and superb examples of chainsaw carvings.

Further along the pathways, past lawns and shrubs, you will come upon a large rockery are flanked by the colourful cottage garden and wild flower plantings.
