“Go for the Poppies”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We were near the end of the himalayan poppy flowering season at Branklyn, and they must have been magnificent a couple of weeks earlier (a national collection). Nevertheless, the visit was very worthwhile and we spent nearly two hours there.
We walked from Perth city, over the railway bridge. The signposting to the gardens is poor, though, so when you get to the end of the bridge you should carry straight ahead and then turn left up a steep path with steps. The gardens are more or less across the road, but slightly to the right, when you reach the top of the steps. There is a path suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs, but it is a lot further round.

“Wonderful Small Garden”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This two acre garden, run by the National Trust for Scotland, is in the city of Perth and is definitely worth an hour or two visit. Always in top condition, the gardens are colorful almost any time of the year. The gardens are especially noted for their Himalayan Blue Poppies which were particularly brilliant when we visited.

“Stunning!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Garden is a riot of colour at this time of year. Given us lots of ideas for our own garden. It isn't huge but is packed full of interesting plants.
Only downside is the road noise.
Free to NTS members.
