“A tad barren”

Barnhill Rock Garden
Ranked #25 of 101 things to do in Dundee
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 30, 2013

There are plenty of seats and the views out to sea is lovely. The beach is very close so grandparents could sit here while parents take the grandchildren onto the beach.
Although well kept there was little to see in plants. It could be improved by all year round colourful planting. A shelter against the cold North winds would also be more welcoming.

Gardens themselves are pretty, however they are also quite small, it only taking 20 minutes or so to wander round them. (that the only reason i did not rate higher). That said they are in a very pretty location, you able to walk the esplanade or the beach itself on route to to them, the view of the water as you go nice. If you are in the ferry or visiting there for the day definitly have a look, it a nice place to sit and relax but it may not be worth taking a trip just to go to the gardens themselves as it won't take long to tour them.

Even if you are not horticulturally minded Barnhill Rock Gardens are worth a visit. The gardens are well maintained and beautiful at anytime of the year. I particularly like to wander the woodland paths through the larger displays. There are benches to sit on and enjoy the tranquility.

A beautiful peaceful area to wander round. Lots to admire - gardener or not - and lots of seats to sit on to gaze at the fabulous views. Take it in on a walk round the Broughty Ferry area of Dundee - the whole area is scenic with lots of places to have a delicious lunch/tea/drinks.
