Cared for by the National Trust for Scotland. Renowned for its peaceful atmosphere, Malleny is the place to come for quiet contemplation in beautiful surroundings. Step through the decorated wrought-iron gate and behold the Four Evangelists – giant 400-year-old clipped yew trees – then discover the Victorian greenhouses and heritage rose plantings.
Discover this tranquil oasis amid the bustle of suburban Edinburgh. Malleny House, built in 1637, provides an interesting architectural backdrop to the garden. Breathe in the gorgeous scents of roses, lavender and philadelphus in summer, and see an impressive 150 varieties of rose, including a heritage collection of shrub roses.
The garden is an ideal place for relaxation and connecting with nature, and the surrounding woodland is full of wildlife. The garden is a haven for plant lovers thanks to a large variety of colourful and fragrant flowers and shrubs. Just outside the garden is a doocot with an unusual saddle-backed roof.
