Dawyck is a wonderful garden at most times of the year, but the snowdrop displays this year are fantastic. The cafe is always somewhere for good food and coffee - the bacon rolls are particularly good, and the scones are excellent. Now fully re-opened, and just as good as ever!

Lovely gardens with a lot of history. We'll laid out with comprehensive labels on the plants and trees, always a help when you see something you perhaps could put in your own garden! Pines and fir trees are amazing and worth a visit on their own. Shop and café are good. Enjoyed the visit even though the weather was unpleasant. Will definitely go back.

Lovely garden with some interesting plants and lovely views down to the house. A good portion of the paths would be accessible in a wheelchair or buggy but they are steep so you would need strong arms! The staff were friendly and helpful and have plenty of info available about different routes you can take round the garden. The cafe was really good and worth a stop off for a scone if you are visiting.

One of four gardens managed by the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh. This one specialises in trees and has some of Scotland’s oldest and largest. Easily walkable in a hillside setting, a must visit if you like big trees and woodland walks. The old estate house and chapel are privately owned and not open to the public. The modern tea room is excellent.
