Fantastic visit lots of wonderful spring flowers at different stages, we were fortunate to choose one of 2 days that they open the garden room to serve teas and coffee with scone, jam and cream for a nominal charge- delicious warm and just out of the oven. The gardens can get busy so arrive early or later in the day.... More

Took a friend after a long absence and was delighted to see the variety and quality of the plants. Blue poppies were out, and other plants equally beautiful.

Astonishing number and range of plants in a two acre site. Absolutely awesome in spring and early summer, but lovely at any time.

We were near the end of the himalayan poppy flowering season at Branklyn, and they must have been magnificent a couple of weeks earlier (a national collection). Nevertheless, the visit was very worthwhile and we spent nearly two hours there. We walked from Perth city, over the railway bridge. The signposting to the gardens is poor, though, so when you...

This two acre garden, run by the National Trust for Scotland, is in the city of Perth and is definitely worth an hour or two visit. Always in top condition, the gardens are colorful almost any time of the year. The gardens are especially noted for their Himalayan Blue Poppies which were particularly brilliant when we visited.

Garden is a riot of colour at this time of year. Given us lots of ideas for our own garden. It isn't huge but is packed full of interesting plants. Only downside is the road noise. Free to NTS members.

I try visit this garden when I am in Perth, it's my favourite National Trust Garden and always gives me inspiration and ideas to take home. It is beautiful and interesting at any time of the year, generally not busy and often has staff or volunteers to talk to and get information. The shop closes at the end of October... More

Likes- colour, variety and layout of plants. Informal but structured, maintained but not manicured. Wonderful place to unwind.
