Royal Botanic Gardens

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by ColinMoss on July 8, 2002

If you are interested in plants and trees, this Garden is a mecca in itself, with a wrold reputation for its research into orchids and Himalayan flora.

If you just want a quiet space in the hectic bustle that is Edinburgh, the Gardens (open during daylight hours only) are a must-see.

Located in the grounds of what was once Edinburgh's best-located stately homes, the Gardens have grown over the years to provide hothouses and rockeries, open spaces and riots of bloom - all with outstanding views of the Edinburgh skyline.
