Dawyck Botanic Garden
The Scottish Borders
This historic, richly landscaped woodland garden has been in the care of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh since 1979, and hosts one of Scotland’s finest tree collections and an array of shrubs and herbaceous specimens that provide interest in every season. Located 8 miles south-west of Peebles in the Scottish Borders, the garden covers 65 acres and is a wonderful place to celebrate the beauty of the seasons.

The garden is open from 1st February- 30th November. Admission Charges. Adult* £6.50, Concession* £5.50, Children Free*, Essential Carers Free. RBGE Members admitted free of charge.
