Less than a mile from the suburban bustle of Clarkston on the south side of Glasgow, Greenbank Garden is a tranquil celebration of the gardener’s art.

Greenbank House and its walled garden were built for Robert Allason in the 1760s. In 1962, the estate was purchased by William Blyth, who set to work transforming the garden into the design you see today. In 1976, William gifted Greenbank House and Garden to the NTS.

Greenbank provides ample inspiration for gardeners, whilst a wander through the soaring beeches and chattering waters of the woodland walk will relax and refresh the spirit.

You can also simply relax in the garden and let the sights, sounds, fragrances and atmosphere of this beautiful urban oasis work its unique magic.

The garden of Greenbank House is an educational garden to inspire and educate visitors on how to grow a very wide range of more unusual plants which are available in the trade.
