Welcome to Blarbuie Woodland & The Sanctuary Sculpture Trail

Beautiful, inspiring, tranquil, healing and accessible woods in the Heart of Argyll.

Following recent restoration, the Blarbuie woodland forms part of the sanctuary of Lochgilphead's Argyll and Bute Hospital grounds. Featuring all-abilities access, outdoor exercise facilities, sculptures and other artworks, the woodland is open to all and is planted with a mix of native and exotic trees.
Users of the mental health services and volunteers from all walks of life, carry out the woodland restoration and ongoing maintenance, offering folk a chance to learn new skills and providing meaningful, supported employment. You can see the results in the many sculptures and artworks, some permanent, some seasonal, some just for fun.  Keep your eyes peeled!
