There is a holiday cottage in Branklyn Garden:

Branklyn Cottage (sleeps 4)

Booking a holiday with the National Trust for Scotland helps us to protect this special place, now and for the future.

Car parking is available in the National Trust for Scotland car park situated in Fairmount Terrace (PH2 7AS). It is a short walk (approximately 200m) from the car park to the garden entrance.

Please note that the car park is unsuitable for motorhomes due to the width of the entrance and exit.

Self-guided trail

Gifts, ice creams, seeds and plants, including a selection of unusual alpines, perennials and bulbs, can be purchased from the shop.


We have a step-free route around the garden, although as the garden is situated across a slope, there is an incline to get from the bottom to the top.

The path surfaces vary between small gravel chip, bark path and grass.

There is level access to the retail & admissions area and the disabled toilet.

We do not have level access into our tearoom, but if the weather is mild, refreshments can be enjoyed at our tables on the lawn, which is accessible.
