Logan Botanic Garden is a botanical garden located near Port Logan on the Rhins of Galloway, at the south-western tip of Scotland.

Logan, is in the Dumfries and Galloway and Benmore in Argyll and Bute, is an outpost or Regional Garden of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

The area has a mild climate due to the influence of the North Atlantic drift. The combination of this and the sheltered aspect of the gardens enables plants to be cultivated which would not normally survive outdoors in Scotland, with species from as far away as Chile, Vietnam and New Zealand all thriving in Logan's borders. Features of Logan include a sizable Walled Garden complete with formal fish pond, an eco-Conservatory housing a variety of South African plants, Tasmanian Creek area, and Discovery Centre which houses various exhibitions throughout the seasons. Voted 'Best Garden in the UK' 2021 and reputed to be Scotland's most exotic Garden.

The garden is also home to Plant Heritage's National Plant Collections of Gunnera, Griselinia and Leptospermum.
