St Andrews Botanic Garden

The Canongate, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 8RT

St Andrews Botanic Garden moved to its present site at Bassaguard in 1960 and since 1987 has been managed by Fife Council. The design and wide range of plants have won international recognition. There are sheltered walks through large plantings of trees and shrubs, water, woodland and rock gardens. A striking collection of rhododendrons, primulae and meconopses. The Glasshouses contain a varied selection of alpines, succulents, tender rhododendrons, orchids and rain forest species. Interpretation boards explain the scientific interest of the garden linking beauty, horticulture and botany. Truly a garden for all seasons.

Five Reasons To Visit St Andrews by Rebecca Winward

"A real hidden gem, the St Andrews Botanic Garden features around 8,000 species of ferns, herbaceous plants, shrubs and trees - all of which thrive in the particular climate of St Andrews. The site is split into specific areas, including heath, herbaceous, woodland, rock and water gardens, as well as the 'order beds', which will be of special interest to those in the know about plant classification."
