This is a lovely maintained garden by the Council. There are statutes of Biblical characters in garden settings consistent with their story. Great place for a walk or meditation.

If you love or even like flowers a little bit you will very much enjoy this. It's very calm and peaceful, totally enclosed and has tons to look at, enjoy and smell!

Lovely little gardens near Elgin Cathedral. Has a biblical theme with plants mentioned in the Bible. An oasis of peace. Free entry and a lovely place to picnic should weather permit.
