Branklyn is a gem. My wife and I visit whenever we come to Scotland and it is always a delight. The plants, the only planting and the colours are beautiful. The sheer variety in such a small site is deeply impressive. Don’t miss it.

A lovely way to spend a relaxing afternoon, walking around the lovely gardens and enjoying all the beautiful flowers and trees. A nice little café very clean and very friendly service by volunteers. Great plant sale today so picked up some nice bargains.
