Scotland in Bloom

VisitScotlandLyndsayVisitScotlandLyndsay Member, Moderator, VisitScotland Staff

What a perfect time of year to explore our woodlands, parks and gardens with an abundance of colourful plants, shrubs and flowers on display. From the bright pinks of the cherry blossom tress, the vibrant blue carpets of bluebells on the woodland floor, and the rhododendrons and azaleas bursting with bright reds, purples, and yellow.

Why not visit one of Scotland’s Gardens and take pleasure in seeing the country in bloom?

With so many to choose from all over Scotland, I have listed just a few below;

Here are some of my own photos taken during recent walks around the area I live  :)<3

    The Meadows are looking particularly beautiful at the moment! Great place for a picnic, a walk or a lie down with your book!

    These are just a few photos of what we have on offer in our garden at Torrdarach House in Pitlochry. The garden is an acre in total and has lots of different sections to it. We will, hopefully, open up our garden for a weekend to raise money for a local charity.
    Best regards
  • We (my sister and I) visited Inverewe Gardens on our last visit to Scotland, and I can't recommend it highly enough.  We were there in the autumn, and I would love to see it in springtime.

    Scotland's Garden Scheme is really popular up in Aberdeenshire - a great chance to visit places not normally open to the public

    Other Gardens not to miss in Aberdeen city include:
    Duthie Park's Winter Gardens - great for all weathers as fully indoors and at this time of year open right through until 7.30pm! Free to visit and Scotland's largest indoor gardens.  Aberdeen University's Botanical Gardens are another hidden Gem - outdoors but beautiful - great guide to these gardens here: - info about the gardens section 7.

    Hope this helps some folk be tempted to visit our wee corner of Scotland :-)

    Based in the Scottish Borders, Aberdeenshire has a special place in my heart.

    I've been bluebell hunting this month. Dalkeith Country Park, Lauriston Castle in Edinburgh and Lower Largo in Fife were abundant with these vibrant little flowers. These photos were taken at Kiel's Den, Lower Largo. It is a bluebell lover's paradise.  :)

    Visited Logan Botanic Gardens in Dumfries & Galloway last weekend, gorgeous and lovely to capture the scents as you walk through the different sections of the gardens.  Loved it.

    There is a hidden gem just off the A932 Arbroath to Forfar Road, a garden called Pitmuies which is in the Scotland's Gardens Scheme.  It is cared for by just 2 people, there's an honesty box for admission, and is a tranquil little paradise.

    We had the pleasure of visiting Ardverikie Estate last week for their open garden day. They open only 1 afternoon per year and I can't believe we actually managed to get the time off from our busy schedule.
    It was an excellent afternoon in the gardens / grounds following the footsteps of Archie, Molly, Golly, Duncan, Lexie & not forgetting Kilwillie & Hector.
