Living in Edinburgh, and being a great fan of the Edinburgh Botanics, along with being a fan of day trips and the occasional weekend escape to St Andrews, I cannot believe I did not know about the St Andrews Botanical Gardens before now! What a wonderful discovery! We arrived bright and early on Sunday morning, and it felt as though we had the gardens to ourselves. The many gardens, within the gardens were breathtakingly beautiful. The rock gardens, the herbaceous borders, the pond and little waterfalls, the amazing tress and spectacular rhododendrons were a real delight! The grounds were magnificent and the glass houses and herb garden were an added bonus! We were sorry to hear that the gardens are now under threat.... Scotland should be proud to have such a speculator display, and I would hate to see it become a commercial enterprise. It was just a most magnificent day out. I cannot wait to return! The £2 entry fee must be one of the UK's best bargains!
