This hidden treasure is a three-acre walled garden surrounded by six acres of woodland, found just outside Balerno, a suburb of Edinburgh. The garden is a haven for plant lovers thanks to its large variety of colourful and fragrant flowers, plants and trees.

The presence of Malleny House, built in 1637, also provides an interesting architectural backdrop, although it is not open to the public. Beside the house there is also an unoccupied doocot with an unusual saddle-backed roof and a fountain.

The grounds are separated from Balerno by a stream, further enhancing the feel of seclusion, privacy and peacefulness.
Did you know?

The garden has had much the same layout for the last 100 years, as can be seen from an illustration by Herbert Maxwell, published in the book Scottish Gardens in 1910.
