Nice little garden, where you can see many different types of plants. There are no views to enjoys and my children got bored quickly so after 15 min we left.

Stopped into Branklyn as we were passing through Perth. It's a really well kept and interesting garden with some great bargains on plants for sale. There's free parking about 5 minutes walk away and you can get a hot drink from the small shop.

Special and unusual garden with meandering pathways and water features. Interesting collection of plants and trees, beautifully arranged. Well worth a visit, you can also buy plants from their small shop.

Beautiful gardens with hundreds of different plants and the option to buy some. Lots of benches to sit on particularly if it is a nice day. No cafe but tea and coffee available. You can spend as much time there as you like. The toilets were very clean and well kept. Would go back to visit again.

A work of art created in the 1920s by two enthusiasts and now in the stewardship of the National Trust of Scotland. So, if you are National Trust members (and remember your cards) entry is free. We were lucky with the weather but it is wise to go well-prepared. And, if you are a garden enthusiast, this place is heaven.... More

We visited Branklyn Gardens in mid-June on a pleasant sunny day - so conditions could not have been more ideal. The gardens looked an absolute picture, ablaze with colour and barely a blade of grass out of place. Birdsong filled the air and the bees were buzzing. Really liked the collection from the Himalayas and was intrigued by their pioneering... More

A short, wee toddle around the more accessible areas of this garden revealed a number of 'bums in the air', i.e. gardeners refreshing different areas of the grounds. Chatted with a couple who were willing to share their plant expertise. A haven.
