2017 is going to be BIG!

Hello! Happy New Year! How are you all! When was the last time you were at Benview? Have you ever been to Benview? You must visit, we have a new Farm Shop and new staff and a BIIIIIIIG list of jobs about to kick off. Come and say hello to us when you have a chance, we are always happy to try and answer all your gardening questions. It may be snowing but there is evidence all around at Benview that Spring is really not that far away... 

I quickly grabbed my iPhone recently to get this shot of snow on the hills, snow on the plants and blue sky!

We have a new Farm Shop!

In November 2016 we launched our new Farm Shop, we are so proud of this new space! The food has moved from the Garden Shop over to the cafe next to Macmillan's Kitchen. We are well stocked with cold meat, Campsie Glen Smoke House seafood charcuterie, a great selection of cheese from Scotland and abroad, gluten free food, a ridiculous amount of chocolate, everything you need to inspire you to get baking, biscuits, savoury crackers, condiments - THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF IN THERE!

I'm hungry.


Where is Benview?

Benview Garden Centre is four miles south of Aberfolyle on the A81. We grow a large proportion of our own plants to suit the Scottish climate and can proudly say we have a range of perennials, trees, and shrubs that you won't find in the larger store chains. We also sell annuals (mainly between March and June) plus fruit and veg plants.

We have everything you need for your garden and more! Call us anytime on 01360 850525 follow us on Facebook and read our blog!

During winter we are open from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm every day except on Sundays when we open a little later at 10 am.

Macmillan's Kitchen

David Macmillan took over the cafe at Benview this year in May. Great coffee, great views, home baked cakes, fresh produce from our greenhouses... what more can I say? Except skip breakfast at home, and go there instead! Meet your friends there for lunch, you're always going to get a warm welcome from David and his team. Great food, great people.

In May this year, Davie left the antiques store next door, he is still in the antiques business and you will find him selling antiques at various markets. Andy has taken over the antiques shop and is busy renovating the building so watch that space!
