Absolutely stunning gardens. The plants and trees are amazing. Lovely wee tea room too with delicious cakes and scones. Great shop too and they also sell top quality plants and herbs. Well worth a visit.

We visited Perth and were recommended Branklyn Gardens. There is an amazing range of plants/bushes/flowers, and it is very easy to find your way round the gardens. Excellent!

I visited this garden with my sister today. It was amazing and beautiful and the people were lovely. The lady in the shop even loaned us some umbrellas as it was a dreicht Scottish Day. Highly recommended.

Lovely garden near the middle of Perth, worth a visit at any time of the year. Rhododendrons and dog-tooth violets were stunning last weekend, but there's always something to see. Looking forward to seeing the meconopsis later in the spring. Revisited at the end of May, and it was looking gorgeous, meconopsis beginning, peonies in full bloom, rhododendrons and azaleas also good. This has become one of Scotland's "must-see" gardens - and the scones are really good as well.
