This gorgeous informal south-facing garden deserves to be better known. There is a fine rose border, lovely terrace, formal area and informal area with ponds and lots of intersting plants. The greenhouses have seating where you could have a picnic.

Lovely tranquil gardens, take a picnic or a book to read and enjoy a good couple of peaceful hours. Summer and Autumn is quite special.

When I entered I did not think much of it but soon changed my mind. It is laid out on a quite steep incline at the bottom of which is a beautiful buttercup studded meadow with a little pond fed by a stream. As you meander down to reach it for your delectation are lovely herbaceous borders, some focal points,... More

When we arrived we noted that the NTS were holding a 'bugs' day for the kids. We were met by Stuart the resident Ranger who was excellent,... More

We went to the Gardens as all the NTS places around Edinburgh we've not seen were shut week of 3 to 6 April 2013. What is it with the National Trust for Scotland? Some big houses, such as Newhailes, seemed to open for a couple of days in April and then shut until May or June! The Gardens are worth... More

A real gardener's garden - lots of interesting plants and of year round interest. Not large but we still managed to spend a good hour and a half here, and could happily have stayed longer.

A nice place to visit but it only needs an hour max. We saw it at the end of the season and it still looked good.

it's been raining so much lately that the gardens weren't looking the best. we didn't have adequate footwear to explore the gardens properly and be aware that the greenhouses are being renovated at the moment.
