These extensive grounds contain a Victorian pinetum with many mature conifers, planthunters’ pavilion, woodland gardens, beech hedge maze, as well as Moot Hill, where Scottish kings were crowned. There is a Douglas fir tree raised from the original seed sent from America by local plant hunter David Douglas in 1826. The kitchen garden supplies produce to the palace kitchens.
With the gradual easing of lockdown restrictions, gardens in the 2-for-1 directory are beginning to open.
To ensure the safety of visitors and staff, many have special measures in place, including pre-booking and limiting the number of visitors.
Before visiting a garden, please contact the garden directly to determine their opening status and any restrictions that may apply.
Please note: we’re unable to keep all individual 2-for-1 garden pages updated, but we will publish the latest details that we have on our weekly updates page from week commencing Monday 8 June, 2020.
