Scotland's Gardens and Parks

Stroll along ancient avenues of rustling beeches. Breathe in the perfume of colourful flowerbeds as busy bees buzz happily around you. Watch stealthy herons as they search for lunch in tinkling streams. 

Whenever you visit, there's always something new in Scotland's gardens, parks, woodlands and plant nurseries to discover. From our four Royal Botanic Gardens and beautiful urban green spaces, to historic castle gardens and country parks, return to nature and let Scotland soothe your spirits.

There are over 400 gardens, woodlands and plant nurseries to visit in Scotland and Discover Scottish Gardens has information about many of them.
