Plants, Trees, Pet Supplies, Farm Shop and good coffee!

Welcome to the Benview web site! Benview is an independent garden centre 4 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 summer we are open from 9 am to 5 pm every day except on Sundays when we open a little later at 10 am. Autumn/Winter hours start October 26.

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.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Date: Saturday 3rd September
Time: 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Venue: Benview Garden Centre, Ward Toll in the first Greenhouse

Come for coffee it's for Macmillan! Help us raise money so everyone facing cancer can have a Macmillan team in their corner. There will be free coffee, tea and juice plus an ambitious display of cakes and baked treats, home baked by the Benview Team. We've been inspired by Episode One of the 'Great British Bake Off'!If you would like to donate any baked goods (homemade or bought!), it will be warmly welcomed! Simply bring it in to Benview the day before, on the Friday (September 2), we close at 5pm.

All proceeds from the bake sale are donated to Macmillan, we hope to raise over £800.00 this year. We will also have takeaway boxes available for anyone wanting to buy cake, but eat at home later! Or give to someone as a gift.

Benview Tea Room will be donating ALL TAKINGS to Macmillan from the time they open to 12:00 pm! So September 3 is great day for brunch!

Our youngest employee Emily is a great baker and she will be kicking off the fundraising this weekend by bringing in her famous cupcakes, which will be for sale for Macmillan in the Farm Shop in the lead up to the coffee morning on September 3.It's all for a great cause and well...'Cake tastes better together!'

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!
