Unique National Trust Scotland property

Biased volunteer, at its best in the springtime, April through May. Closed over winter, reopens 1st March 2016 and lots of work to do over winter to prepare for reopening.

Visited the gardens number of times now. Each time really loving the experience. Despite the size, only 2 acres there is so much to see. If you think it's not enough, ask member of NTS Garden team. They are extremaley passionate about their work and happily would tell you more about the garden, ground and plants... Definitely a 'must do'... More

We have been to Perth many time but never visited Branklyn Garden. As its run by National Trust its a little pricey for entry. Some of the plants are amazing and the colour were good when we visited n October.

Although closed for the season, we were allowed to view as we are NTS members. Liked the open space disliked not seeing the blue poppies

Within walking distance of the city. The garden was compact and enjoyable to walk round. The member of staff on the day we went was unfriendly which is unusual for national trust. It would have been nice to be able to purchase a drink but the shop was closed despite all information saying it should have been open.

Visited at the end of September and there was still plenty of colour all around the garden. The network of paths meander through various inspired plant combinations which include a lot of unusual species. The entire garden is immaculately cared for. Don't miss this gem and allow plenty of time to wander and enjoy it from all angles. Well done... More

Visited with a group of people in July15. We enjoyed this little gem not far from the centre of Perth. Lots of different and interesting plants and gorgeous blue poppies! The expert introduction by Garden manager contributed to overall great experience. It will be nice to see it during different seasons.

Lucky enough to visit on a sunny August afternoon. I would imagine there is something to see whatever time of year you visit. Many plants recognisable from ordinary gardens but also the exotics. Only drawback was the busy road which took away any peace in the gardens.

This is a beautiful little garden set on a hillside above the Tay. With lots of different plants, there's always something flowering and a good collection for sale at reasonable prices.

Well known for its Rhoddedendron and Azalea displays earlier in the season at this time of year there is still a lot of colour to be seen walking round .usually a... More
