This hidden treasure is a walled garden surrounded by 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. Access to the doocot can be arranged by contacting the Property Manager.

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