There was very little display in the gardens and not a single person in sight I spent about ten minutes here as there was little here.

I always like taking in the seasons at Branklyn whether spring daffs and tulips or the vibrant azaleas & Rhoddies through the Summer . The golden colours of Autumn are now and it is great to walk through this peaceful sanctuary located not far from the town centre .There is also a small shop selling a wide range of plants... More

The garden was well set out but a bit "plain" in Autumn, with most of the plants not in flower. Perhaps they should "discount" out of season

A varied selection of plants, for the small 2 acre site. So, great to not have to walk too far for such a collection.

Went with a group on a wet Sunday in June, but well worth it, taken round by the head gardener, so much knowledge to impart.

this was worth seeing. We walked across Perth to the East side of Perth, walked over the Bridge across the river Tay. The gardens were welltaken care of and I can only imagine at their very best. Lovely city and lovely walk.

Very nice garden, packed with beautiful plants, flowers and a wee stream/pond. Small plant sale area and toilets. Would get an extra star if there was a coffee shop too!

Lovely gardens with a wide array of plants. Although the garden is only small there are paths that wind and wind to keep you well intrigued. The gardens are near a busy road into Perth itself, but you dont really hear the traffic as you lose yourself in the gardens. We missed a lot of the plants in flower, but... More
