The Forfar Botanists
The tale of the Forfar Botanists is an inspirational one. Five local men, who were all born into poverty with little formal education, all achieved lasting fame for their contributions to botany. Their love of plants and their dedication took them to the far corners of the world and the heady heights of academia.
The plans have been submitted for planning approval and we hope to start clearing the site in spring. Why not inspect the site before we start work? This is how it looks now.
The location is at the east end of the Myre car park.

As a tribute to the Forfar Botanists, we are creating a garden at the Myre in Forfar and a grove of trees near Forfar Loch. Please have a look at our projects page to see all our plans.
