Visited in early September, so probably missed out on the main flowering displays. We'd like to re-visit maybe in June when there's more to see. The gardens are right next to the main Dundee Road which is very busy.......and very noisy, which detracts from the experience.

A small garden, so not too much walking involved to see round it all, but never the less still very beautiful with many paths turning and twisting through all the trees, lawns, flowerbeds, and shrubs - there's even a small stream and pond to add to the atmosphere of tranquillity, though the traffic noise from outside this haven does try...

Visited this garden on a warm cloudy day. Shop was shut on arrival but soon met the sole NTS gardener and had a long chat about the history and care of the garden. Beautifully maintained beds, lawn, rockery and water feature, very neat and tidy. Lovely meandering paths and some wonderful specimen plants. Well worth a visit.

Very small, but a lot of plants arranged in a maze of small paths. Noise from the very close by Dundee Road spoils any tranquility. Not a lot of garden for the admission fee.

We never tire of a visit to one of the best gardens on this side of Scotland being members of the National Trust we come fairly regularly . August is not the best month for colour but there are still some stunning plants to admire .There was no one manning the shop but there is an honesty box for people... More

Branklyn is a tiny garden but extremely well laid out to give the visitor an enchanting experience. Follow the paths to really appreciate the range and diversity of plants, trees and shrubs complemented by rock gardens, a pond and a small waterfall. Sit awhile on the benches strategically placed around to enjoy the ever-changing vista, especially looking up - you... More

Highly recommend. Don't let the fact that this is a small garden put you off. It is magnificent. Quite amazing how clever design can create an image of something larger. Plenty of spaces to sit and enjoy; maybe do a few sketches too! The garden is well-maintained. Please find time to visit. You won't be disappointed.

I have visited many different gardens, this is really awesome. So many different species of plants, beautiful trees, full of flowers. Very well kept, it's amazing to smell the scent of the flowers walking through the gardens. It's close to the city centre, just across the bridge. It takes around 15 minutes walking from the city centre but it's really... More

Well worth a visit, I have visited a variety of National Trust gardens and this one had a large number of plant species I had never come across.
