Pitmedden Garden

Re-created Scottish Renaissance walled garden with unique and vibrant floral designs

Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to the grounds – 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.


Dogs are welcome on the woodland estate but not in the walled garden (except for assistance dogs).

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 email: pitmeddengarden@nts.org.uk or telephone 01651 842352.

Facilities & access

Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas.

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.

Disabled parking is available.

  • The tearoom, upper garden and parts of the museum are all accessible.
  • The lower parterres are accessible via an alternative entrance – please ask staff.

Children will enjoy discovering the nature hut on the woodland walk. In the walled garden, they can follow the ‘Ben the Garden Cat Trail’ and play children’s Garden Bingo.

Coach parking

We offer guided tours for groups.

Parking is free for members of the National Trust for Scotland.

Otherwise there are pay & display charges.

The picnic area is an ideal spot to stop for lunch.

The heart of the property is the formal walled parterre garden. There are also extensive herbaceous borders with an abundance of colour and scent. Fountains, topiary, sundials and a fascinating herb garden add to the sense of discovery.

The surrounding woods are a haven for birds and other wildlife.

The adjacent Museum of Farming Life boasts an extensive collection of domestic and agricultural artefacts.
