Peaceful Little Sensory Garden
Sep 2021
A nice little garden to walk through and admire. Very tranquil, considering it sits on the main thoroughfare.

What a find
Jul 2021
Very much an accidental find on wander around the village, wonderful creation, you'd never know there is main road within yards of you as you take a walk around this garden. Some panels by a plant saying what it is would be nice but it would need to be in the keeping of the garden. Super plants and amours in the air.

A retreat from the Hustle and Bustle
Aug 2020
Well maintained peaceful haven set back from the busty main road opposite the Railway Station .There is a map as you enter and leafy plaques in stainless steel with the names of contributors to the garden .May to June is probably the best time for colour and scent . At this time of year there are some of the autumn flowers and grasses .|There is a circular seated area where you can relax also a stainless sculpture of seals

Found this beautiful community garden quiet by accident but what a wonderful creation. Carefully thought out a small piece of tranquility with beautiful plants and flowers.

Mixed planting in a lovely sheltered spot in the middle of a very well cared for village. Garden has many different types of plants to create a sensory experience. The plants are colourful and interesting and there are seating areas.

Zen thoughts

The Aberdour Sensory Garden was set up by local volunteers, to serve as a place where perfumes, the sound of breezes among the leaves, the harmonious juxtaposition of different flowers and shrubs, and decorative paths, would make a place for quiet relaxation.
It is now fully-established, and tended by local volunteers. Blind people, the deaf, disabled, and the lucky able-bodies can come here at any time, find something of horticultural interest, and relax or meditate. Delightful.

Delightful little haven
Jun 2018 • Family
Visited the Aberdour Sensory Garden yesterday with my daughter whilst on a day trip to the area.
Situated across the road, and about a two minute walk from Aberdour Castle, the Railway Station, and Memorial Clock.
The Aberdour Sensory Garden was opened on the 9th October 2010 by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown along with his wife Sarah.
It occupies the site of the original Aberdour Primary School and Headmaster's house, the buildings being demolished in 1974.
The area was transformed by the Village in Bloom committee.
Many names of those who donated and/or helped to transform the area are recognised for their efforts by plaques on a wall within the garden.
A very tranquil area in which to relax for both locals and visitors alike, with picnic tables, benches, sculptures, features, and an assortment of plants and greenery.
Would definitely recommend a visit if in the area.

Very pretty!

Small but worth a visit, this garden is lovely! Free, two minutes from the train station in such a picturesque wee town, it's a must do! Gorgeous plants, quirky sculptures, scattered seating areas. Quiet and tranquil wee spot. Enjoyed it.
