Explore nature

The Scottish Borders is the perfect location for nature lovers, and what better way to explore the area than by relaxing in grand Scottish gardens. We've listed some of the best gardens in the area, and all of them are well worth a visit.

  • Kailzie Gardens

    Just outside Peebles is a grand Scottish domestic garden occupying a beautiful position on the River Tweed. Surrounded by magnificent hills and planted with a wide variety of mature specimen trees, the 15 acres of wild gardens provides the best location for long walks. Within the walled garden are greenhouses, herbaceous borders, many unusual species of shrubs, laburnum arches and an enchanting rose garden.

  • Dawyck Botanic Gardens

    Located in Stobo, Dawyck is one of four gardens that comprise the National Botanic Gardens of Scotland, and is also a regional garden of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh whose mission is to explore and explain the world of plants. Dawyck has a history of planting that exceeds 300 years, providing the experience to explore some of the oldest and tallest trees in Europe.

  • St Ronan's Wells Visitor Centre

    In 2007, the adjoining gardens to the historic spa were featured in the BBC's Beechgrove Garden programme. Perfect for a relaxing afternoon, you can walk around the grounds, admire the beautiful sculptures, and take everything in as you rest in the scenic picnic area.

  • Traquair House

    Although there are no formal gardens at Traquair House, over 100 acres of grounds incorporate a mixture of woodland, lawn, and the popular Traquair maze. Originally part of the Ettrick Forest, Traquair was historically surrounded purely by its woodlands. Today it nestles amongst the most wonderful trees including Douglas Firs, Limes, Horse Chestnuts and Beech. Meander over to the west side of the house where you will discover Cupid's garden planted with only white and grey flowers, before experiencing the spectacular sight of the yew tree circle featuring some of the oldest yews in Scotland.
