Philiphaugh Gardens & Nursery
Philiphaugh Garden, situated 2 miles West of Selkirk, in 1899 was the second biggest walled garden in Scotland. Now fully restored the garden produces flowers, fruit, bedding plants, vegetables for sale to the public. The Waterwheel cafe and Salmon Viewing Centre are situated close by and well worth a visit.
Philiphaugh Gardens is pleased to welcome Selkirk Gin Distillers, who have just opened a craft distillery in the Old Joinery building on the Philiphaugh Estate. Products from the garden will be incorporated to make the gin. The first batch of Reiver's Gin has already been produced. Why not visit the distillery after leaving the gardens.
