Garden Styles and Themes

Almost every style of Scottish garden history is represented in the Trust`s portfolio - from medieval to twentieth-century developments. The gardens also range enormously in their size, location and the types of plants grown, giving each one its own unique character and set of attractions. For a more complete story of 500 years of Garden History please click here.

Each garden may contain lots of different styles and landscapes and include a wide selection of different garden themes for example rose gardens, herbaceous borders, orchards and extensive country parks. This section will look at examples of the different styles which exist in NTS gardens.

Some examples of historical types are:
