In the depths of the Scottish Borders countryside, Dawyck Botanic Garden has a stunning collection of trees and shrubs.
These majestic specimens provide an impressive backdrop for the series of walks that give a glimpse into the wealth of plants on display such as the highly scented azaleas and unusually hardy rhododendrons. The garden is the home to, not only a host of botanical wonders, but also an abundance of wildlife. As you meander through the Heron Wood Reserve you can find out more about the fascinating world of fungi, lichens and mosses and if you are lucky, you might see a red squirrel or a colourful woodpecker too. Make sure you take a stroll along the Beech Walk as the reward is a wonderful tree top view of Dawyck and the Tweed Valley beyond.
