Viewfield Garden Collective

This is a garden project for vulnerable and disadvantaged adults in Skye & Lochalsh

We grow plants, and we help to grow people

Viewfield Garden Collective is a charity that operates a therapeutic garden project in Portree, on the beautiful Isle of Skye, supporting adults living with mental health difficulties. It aims to provide a relaxed and friendly space to educate, promote citizenship and create opportunities to improve physical and mental health and wellbeing.

What we do

We use horticulture, creative arts and the environment as a means to support and develop our volunteers and work to enable them to be better connected in the wider community and workplace.

Public visitors are welcome to explore the garden and path network throughout the year.

Please remember to visit the sales shed and support the Collective’s work by purchasing fresh produce.

Come visit us

Our kitchen garden is a peaceful oasis hidden away on the outskirts of Portree, on the Isle of Skye. If approaching Portree from the South of the Island take the left hand turn opposite the petrol station. You will see signs to Viewfield House and Skye Shrubs. Halfway up the drive take the right hand turn and you will find us next to Skye Shrubs.

Please note that parking is restricted and we recommend visiting on foot.

Due to current Covid-19 related regulations and restrictions the garden is currently closed to the public. Volunteers should communicate with staff members to see if visiting is possible. Please keep checking our website and social media pages for updates.
