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.

I am a very biased reviewer when it comes to this delightful garden which we visit 3 or 4 times a year to take in the different seasons . 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

A flying visit, so no coffee and cakes! One of the loveliest small gardens we've visited. Seems bigger because of the clever use of winding paths and screening bushes.

Very nice smallish garden on the outskirts of Perth. Definitely worth a visit.Some interesting plants and a few benches to sit and enjoy the garden.

Just my sort of garden, small, lots of interesting and unusual plants, especially alpine types. Not much in the way of refreshments but within walking distance of the city centre. Well worth the stroll over a couple of bridges.

Visited this small but excellent Garden during July when visiting Perth for the weekend Had a slight problem trying to find somewhere to park. The garden itself is lovely and peaceful and is great place to sit and enjoy the variety of unusual plants / flowers. Will certainly visit again when in Perth.

Second visit to Branklyn. It's an excellent and interesting garden on a sloping sight with some unusual plants. They specialise in Meconopsis (blue poppies) so hope to go back next year when they are in flower.
