Dunragit is a village on the A75, between Stranraer and Glenluce
inDumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland. Dunragit is within the
parish of Old Luce, in the traditional county of Wigtownshire. The
modern village grew up around the west gate of Dunragit House, an
18th-century country house, though there is evidence of Neolithic
settlement in the area. Dunragit Creamery was operated by Nestlé,
but this is no longer in use.
The 12-acre (49,000 m2) Glenwhan Garden has been created in Dunragit,
since 1979, out of a gorse and bracken covered hillside, inspired by
the nearby Logan Botanic Garden and Tresco on the Isles of Scilly.
It is open to the public.

stocked plant centre for you to browse, and we have a range of
