It was a drizzly cool afternoon at the Gardens. We enjoyed the walks through the green houses and thru the outdoor gardens. We stopped at the tea house for tea and scones and it was a nice and much needed break. We enjoyed our time at the Gardens, we did not go to Kibble Palace

I love gardens at all times of the year a heavy due or jack frost decorating trees and bushes its all the same to me.

After walking through the gardens a visit to the tearooms is a must and once again I was not disappointed.

What a wonderful Country Scotland is, of course I would say that being a Highlander although I have lived with sasanacks for more than half a century.

Took my mum here whilst she was on holiday it was lovely, although the cafe was incredibly understaffed the whole experience was most enjoyable.

Loved the tea room, the flowers, the buzz of people on a sunny day. We sat outside the conservatories and watched the world go by for several hours. Brilliant day out.

It was so warm and sunny when I visted and it just added to the experience. Really well presented, and FREE ! Relaxing place for lunch or a snack or a frizbee in the park.
