Tucked away behind stone walls in the charming village of Inveresk, this delightful hillside garden offers an oasis of calm and a year-round feast for the senses.

The garden is open all year and is split into two main areas to enjoy: the sloping lawns and borders at the top of the hill, and the wilder woodland and ponds below, both alive with birdsong and wildlife.

In the top half, you’ll find unusual plants brushing leaves with some more familiar friends growing among mixed beds and borders. You’ll also be drawn to the beautiful restored Edwardian conservatory which is home to an aviary.

This sunny hillside garden in the historic village of Inveresk entices visitors with its colourful herbaceous beds, attractive shrubs and old roses.
