Welcome to Discover Scottish Gardens

COVID-19 UPDATE – May 2020

We are carefully monitoring the advice from the Scottish and UK Governments and the NHS about the COVID-19 situation.  As social distancing is of paramount importance, many gardens have closed to keep staff and visitors safe.

Some of our members are open and welcome local people from within walking distance to use paths and woodlands for their daily exercise, being careful to follow government guidance.   If you do walk into the local area, please keep dogs under control and use hand sanitisers if you open any gates. 

Please do browse our site and visit member garden websites to check the current situation. Be sure to follow our social media, as we share news from member gardens who continue to offer garden inspiration and appreciate your support. We also have wonderful nurseries and garden centre members working hard to respond to growing demand through online and telephone orders.


Scottish gardens are a delight to visit at any time of the year and there is always something new to discover. From the far north of Scotland to the Borders in the south, there are over 400 Scottish gardens, woodlands and plant nurseries open to visitors. Explore our website and be inspired by what’s on offer at some of the best gardens in Scotland from seasonal garden displays to events for all the family. Some members also provide holidays, tours and accommodation. Learn more about Scotland’s diverse climate and the plant collections that thrive here.
