PLANTS described as smelling “like male cat pee” have been added to Inverewe Garden in the north-west Highlands.

The yellow trumpet plants, whose petals give off the pungent aroma, are among new carnivorous species in the Savage Garden display at the site.

The other species at the National Trust for Scotland’s garden include Venus flytrap and the cobra plant.

The Savage Garden has been opened as part of £1.5 million development.

Inverewe Garden was created on the Wester Ross coast in the 1860s.
