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

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?
