Nice short woodland walk with wooden sculptures along the trail. Basic homely beverage & food offering with friendly staff. The gardens are lovely. On our first visit we went to see "A midsummer nights dream" in the evening, set in the gardens - it was a fantastic setting. Ideal or a picnic on the house lawn with a beautiful enclosed... More

Spent a lovely time visiting the gardens one afternoon. The gardens have different themes, my favourite was the summer garden which was buzzing with the sound of bees and wasps among the beautiful array of summer flowers. There is a tea room with outdoor seating but you can bring along a picnic as there are benches within the garden.

I enjoy visiting this garden throughout the year; 45 mins is enough to see it all. The garden is a on a gentle southerly slope surrounded by trees, so plants are quite early so bear that in mind when timing your visit. Unlike many West Scotland gardens, there's hardly any rhododendrons etc, this is much more like an English garden... More

Despite being signed off the old A77 through Newton Mearns, don't be fooled by thinking it's "just round the corner". Still a fair old way up hill and down dale by car before you reach your destination. Worth the trek though, although be sure to wear "sensible" shoes as the ground is susceptible to the wet climate of the area,... More

A lovely quiet and peaceful gardens surrounded by woodland. A great place to go for a quiet walk or even to read a book on a nice warm day. Well worth a visit.

This NTS garden on the south side of Glasgow is a lovely peaceful quiet spot. The gardens are really well looked after and offer a range of secluded areas around each corner. There is a nice coffee shop and you can buy a range of plants in the courtyard. The car park is not very big and can fill up... More

NTS gardens. fairly small but well cultivated and great for an afternoon stroll and a look at the mansion house - not open to visitors. Food is limited to soup and roll or sandwich. great coffee and scones. Small shop. Not a place for a whole-day visit but very pleasant and peaceful.

Being a member of the National Trust & living in East Ren I visit the gardens often. Lovely in the summer & great plant & bulb saled in Autumn. Also lovely tearoom as you entre. Lovely when you can get into the house to look around but not always open
