Gorgeous, gorgeous gardens which we visit every year for the lovely blooms and to enjoy the birds. However we saw it from a different perspective last May becausebMum was in a wheelchair! It was such a shock to realise that much of the gardens are inaccessible to the elderly or disabled. It took me and my brother Michael to negotiate... More

I didn't know this Garden existed until my friend mentioned it, beautifully kept and make a nice change to the larger parks in Aberdeen, very peaceful and my daughter enjoyed feeding the ducks and the little play park at the back. Well worth a visit!

I love these gardens they are really a lovely little place to visit. The memorial to the helicopter flight disaster of BP Miller is a nice setting for their families to visit too.

A bid off the beaten track in suburban Aberdeen but not hard to find or get to. Thoughtful planting scheme for year-round colour and very well maintained. Has a small toilet block not far from the entrance. Easy walking layout with good paths, if a little steep in places, still manageable with a manual wheelchair if you park sideways to... More

Johnston Gardens is near the Gordon Highlanders Museum, providing a nice stroll before or after a visit to the museum (have a walk, a tour, and then a cup of tea in the museum's cafe. The Gardens is also a great place for a meditative stroll, even after one of those oh-so-common rain showers. The vegetation is abundant and fragrant.... More

This garden is really beautiful, very well kept and a joy to visit at ANY time of year, but particularly so now in late May and early June when the azaleas are coming into bloom. Sit and relax here, and you can forget that you are in a city. Revel in the peace and quiet, and enjoy what is really... More

A beautiful woodland garden with corners for quiet contemplation. Particularly lovely when the azaleas are in bloom. The colours are spectacular. If in need of a coffee after visiting the gardens, the Gordon Highlanders centre is just round the corner.
