Explorers, the Scottish Plant Collectors, Pitlochry

Explorers, the Scottish Plant Hunters Garden, is an extended garden and forest area which pays tribute to Scottish botanists and collectors who roamed the world in the 18th and 19th centuries in search of new plant species.
 
This is very much a modern rather than a traditional garden, with sinuous trails taking you past some attractive landscapes and features such as an open air ampitheatre which is sometimes used for outdoor performances, sculptures, and the David Douglas pavilion, a soaring chamber beautifully constructed from Douglas fir.
