Reasons for trip

Maintained by the National Trust for Scotland, Branklyn Garden was created in the early 1920s by John and Dorothy Renton with the help of seed collections from internationally celebrated plant hunters.

This well maintained two acre site is a peaceful and fascinating oasis packed with shrubs and flowers. Alpines, Azaleas and Rhododendrons were at their best during our visit in late April. A variety of other plants, shrubs and trees will be at their best in summer and autumn. Follow the web of paths around the garden; then sit down on one of the many benches and enjoy the atmosphere. As you reluctantly leave the garden you will be tempted by a sale of good quality plants.
