About the garden
Alison Farrell / National Trust for Scotland
Visitors to Geilston can discover an abundance of horticultural and culinary highlights in this beautifully designed, tranquil landscape. Young explorers can fuel their imagination with garden games, trails and the Hobbit Hole Playground.
The 18th century Walled Garden exudes charm throughout the seasons with mixed shrub, heather and herbaceous flowering borders set off by the beautifully restored productive glasshouses. The Kitchen Garden produces an abundance of fruit, vegetables and cut flowers, all of which are available to purchase in season.
Enjoy the stunning colourful display of the annual flowering mini meadow maze, a haven for bees and butterflies during the summer. The Geilston Burn meanders its way through the woodland garden, which provides a tranquil habitat for wildlife and is carpeted in spring by a stunning display of daffodils followed by bluebells in May.
