Created as a private garden, on an Atlantic hillside, in the mid 1950s, this five acre haven perched on a cliff overlooking the east coast has grown to become one of the most acclaimed botanic gardens in the region

Turner's Hall woods
Upon entering the dense forest the high humidity brings about the realisation that this is a different world, with a radically different ecosystem.
Wandering through this ancient forest is a fascinating experience, surrounded by lianas, silk cotton, jack-in-the box and magnificent mahogany trees. The tall locust trees grow as high as thirty metres. Vines string and weave their way around the canopy.
Take in the natural beauty and wildlife before joining the 21st century again!
Although a few non-indigenous plants have been planted over the years the gully is not dissimilar to that which covered the island in the 17th century. In 1962, following many years of neglect the Barbados National Trust took it over and this site in fact became Barbados' first organised natural attraction.
Well worth a treck for the fabulous views across the craggy, eroded hills of the Scotland District, named, by the original home-sick Scots after their much loved land of Robbie Burns.
This is a quiet, peaceful spot to enjoy the views from Pico Teneriffe in the north to Ragged Point in the east. It is a delight to watch the swirling swifts paraglide the warm air currents.
Barbados is blessed with many natural phenomena including tropical gullies, click to learn more
