About this place

Renowned for its peaceful atmosphere, Malleny is the place to come for quiet contemplation in beautiful surroundings. The garden is a haven for plant lovers thanks to a large variety of colourful and fragrant flowers and shrubs.

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.

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