Osgood Hanbury Mackenzie was born on 13 May 1842 at the Chateau de Talhouet, in Morbihan, Brittany, son of Sir Francis Mackenzie, 5th Baronet and 12th Laird of Gairloch and Mary, daughter of Osgood Hanbury, of Holfield Grange, Essex. Mackenzie's father died a year or so after he was born and he was brought up to speak both English and Gaelic whilst educated at home. In 1862, with the help of his mother, he purchased the 12,000-acre estate of Inverewe and Kernsary, near Poolewe in Wester Ross. There he built a Scottish Baronial style mansion and set about creating a garden. Within 40 years, he had established one of the finest collections in Scotland of temperate plants from both Northern and Southern hemispheres. Mackenzie had one child, Mary (Mairi) Thyra, and his marriage broke down while his daughter was still young. He died on 15 April 1922 bequeathing Inverewe to his daughter. Following the death of her second husband, and being without any children, she gave the garden to the National Trust for Scotland in 1952, together with an endowment for its future upkeep.
