Worth the trip to Balerno for this stunning garden
Malleny Garden is a National Trust for Scotland property situated in Balerno. This beautiful 400 year old garden is free to enter for those that are members of the NTS, but non-members can pay the admission price of £3.50 into the donation box. Concession and family prices also apply.
One of the main features of the garden is the four, 400 year old yew trees in the middle. Take a seat on one of the many benches and spend a couple of hours of quiet contemplation amidst beautiful surroundings.
The roses are stunning in the summer and the greenhouse is a wonderful array of colours.
This garden is perfect to visit after a walk along the neighbouring Water of Leith.
Suitable for disabled? Partially. You can drop off near the house (private) and enter the gardens there to avoid the steps. The paths are made up of small stones, but are manageable.
