Benview is a friendly, independent garden centre based in central Scotland, just off the A81 between the villages of Aberfoyle and Buchlyvie, approx. 25 miles (45 mins) north of Glasgow. We pride ourselves on offering a personalised service and are always happy to answer gardening and plant questions. As well as lots of lovely plants and trees, we have a popular Gift Shop and Garden Shop, plus a well-stocked Pet Shop and a House Plant Room. There is also MacMillan's Kitchen (cafe) on site, with wonderful views to the hills and forests of The Trossachs. We've plenty of free parking and the centre is fully wheelchair accessible. We welcome well-behaved dogs; you can sit outside at the cafe with your dog (NB this is an uncovered area) and they are permitted in the outside garden centre and Garden Shop, but not inside the Gift Shop or cafe. Thank you.
We are happy to say that we are open as follows to the public:
Mon - Sat 09:00 - 17:00
Sun 10:00 - 17:00

A BIT MORE ABOUT US...
We grow a large proportion of our own plants either on site or at our sister nursery, ensuring the plants will be well suited to the local climate and soil types. We offer everything you need to get your garden growing from flower and vegetable seeds, bedding, fruit and veg, perennials, alpines, roses and shrubs, propagation equipment and tools, a wide range of composts, pots and fertilizers, canes, stakes and trellis. We are also an agent for Zest Outdoor Living and Elite Greenhouses.
In Spring our greenhouses are full of bedding plants, which we grow ourselves; and we are pleased to offer a hanging basket-filling service (with many of our baskets winning local awards).
At Christmas we are busy creating fresh bespoke Christmas wreaths and door rings, as well as graveside posies and table decorations. Our pop-up Christmas Shop is packed with festive gifts, food/drink and decorations, and we sell locally-sourced Christmas trees. We usually have a Christmas event for the children and in 2023 started running our own wreath-making workshops, which quickly sold out! Christmas events are usually booked through Eventbrite but keep an eye on our Facebook page for future announcements.
Houseplants have become an increasingly popular feature which can help liven up any space in your home, or add a splash of colour.
Bird seed, hangers, boxes and baths. Dog and cat food, treats, accessories and beds. Small animal supplies.
We have it all !
Whether you're after something tall, small, bright, evergreen, unique, or simply something new, we will have you covered .
