May have been better earlier in season. Large house garden. Staff friendly. Visited as number three on TA of things to do in Perth - hmm. Only £1 less than Scone Palace for the garden there. Not worth £6.50 entry p.p. Park in carpark, short...More

Easy access from a busy main but watch watch out for the signs. Although not the size and expanse of other NTS gardens we would still recommend a visit. At the correct time of year Menonopsis poppies are their speciality. Lovely plants, plant sales, gift...More

As already mentioned, Branklyn is a small garden but beautifully designed. Perennials everywhere, lots of pink and blue colours, scents of vanilla, jasmine, honey, spice (was there in June). In some areas seemed to be no plan, or I didn't understand it... Again and again...More

Lovely garden , the only downside for us was most of the flowers were past , but I'm sure it would have been beautiful earlier on . Well worth a visit and the home made scones and home made jam was delicious .

Hello, when we visited we had to leave our dog in the car (in the shade) but maybe it would be worth asking at the office (just inside the gate). I think dogs should be allowed - they are much better behaved than some... More
