The formal gardens include herbaceous beds with colourful azaleas and assorted shrub, bush and border plants. A pond fringed with a patio and beds with alpines and heaths is to the western side.
A feature of the gardens at Creag Mhor House is a number of tall and impressive specimen trees. The formal gardens blend into pretty natural woodland gardens and the backdrop is attractive semi ancient native woodland.
