Small garden plants many flowers and plants. Some of them are rare. If interested in gardening or plants, knowledge and skills will acquire. Rainy/cold/windy days down the mood , better to visit in sunny day.

Branklyn is a gem. My wife and I visit whenever we come to Scotland and it is always a delight. The plants, the only planting and the colours are beautiful. The sheer variety in such a small site is deeply impressive. Don’t miss it.

Obviously gardens are more attractive in the summer but, even in autumn, the colours of the leaves and the variety of plants and layout is still worth a visit.

I visited here with my sister and parents as a stopover on the way home from a night away in Perthshire. So glad we did. We had a walk round the garden and a chat with the friendly gardeners/horticulturists. It's only a small garden so...More

Branklyn is a National Trust garden and quite simply offers a selection of plants that no garden centre could hope to emulate. Ever helpful staff and always immaculately presented - obviously a labour of love.

I would say limited. A lot of the paths are suitable but other bits could've quite difficult.

Dogs are not allowed but last I heard they may be tied to the gate if they don’t cause a nuisance.
