Was smaller than I expected and not much in bloom (early June) but otherwise a really nice hidden spot right off royal mile. Very quiet and peaceful, a nice contradiction to the busiest street in Scotland nearby. Benches to sit on and eat your lunch or read a book if you want. A couple were in getting some wedding pictures done while I was there which was nice to see. Definitely recommend if you’re in the area, but wouldn’t make a huge detour to see it.

This was an amazing find. A secluded, quiet, well kept garden just off the Royal Mile. Lovely and peaceful place to sit after the hustle and bustle of the very busy street. Recommend a visit.

This surprised me! Perfect example of Edinburgh charm. Walking down the street and just happened to look left and saw an opening into this small peaceful area. Seems like a place that some local residents swing by to catch a little sunshine and read a book. A number of benches, very little green space, but just pleasant gardens. Wouldn’t make a specific out of the way to visit, but worth popping in if walking in the area.

Stunning, quiet little gem. When the royal mile is too busy Dunbars close is a brilliant escape

Stunning little hide away from the hustle and bustle. Grab a coffee from costa and cross the road to this hidden haven and enjoy the peaceful gardens, bliss!
