Malleny Garden

Tranquil oasis on the outskirts of Edinburgh, where heritage roses sit alongside 400-year-old yew trees

Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Malleny Garden – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

Coaches: please park on Bavelaw Green and walk to the garden (5 mins).

Responsible dog walkers are welcome in the woodland garden.

Only assistance dogs are allowed in the walled garden.

For more information about planning your visit, please see the drop-down facilities below or our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us, we can be contacted by telephone on 0131 665 1546.

Facilities & access

Visitor reviews of accessibility can be found on the Euan’s Guide website here.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Visitors with mobility difficulties may be dropped off and enter the garden at the small side gate by Malleny House.

There’s limited free parking on site (100m from the garden gate), which is not suitable for coaches.

Malleny Garden is an ideal place for relaxation and connecting with nature, and the surrounding woodland is full of wildlife.

The garden holds a National Collection (NCCPG) of 19th-century shrub roses – over 100 different roses are represented. The best time to see them is in June and July.

Wooden benches and stone seats are dotted throughout the garden, so there are plenty of places to sit and take a breather.

There are gravel paths throughout the garden, which is level in the top half but gently sloping in the bottom half, so assistance may be required.
