Malleny Garden

A tranquil oasis amid beautiful surroundings

  • Discover a hidden treasure amid the bustle of suburban Edinburgh. 

  • Sit and take a breather on one of the wooden benches and stone seats dotted throughout the garden.

  • Breathe in the gorgeous scents of roses, lavender and philadelphus  in summer. 

  • See an impressive 150 varieties of rose, including a heritage collection of shrub roses. 

Renowned for its peaceful atmosphere, Malleny is the place to come for quiet contemplation in beautiful surroundings.  

Through a decorated wrought-iron gate the walled garden opens out to the Four Evangelists – huge 400-year-old clipped yew trees. Victorian greenhouses and heritage rose plantings complete the picture of cultivated calm. The garden is a haven for plant lovers thanks to a large variety of colourful and fragrant flowers and shrubs.

Just outside the garden is a doocot with an unusual saddle-backed roof.
