Duns, formerly the county town of Berwickshire, lies approximately 12 miles north of the border between Scotland and England and still retains a thriving market square reminiscent of an ancient Scottish Burgh. It is home to an award-winning motor sport museum depicting the life and career of Formula 1 Champion, Jim Clark OBE, as well as Duns Castle Estate with its numerous paths to explore. There are extensive green areas in and around the town offering delightful walks all year round. After a hugely successful first year of opening our gardens in 2021, we are delighted to be able to do so again this year. Our gardens are lovingly tended by enthusiastic gardeners, happy to share them with likeminded people. They offer a wonderful variety of size, layout and planting, ensuring that there is something for everyone. We are sure you will enjoy your time in Duns, meeting and chatting with other garden lovers and sharing ideas and plans for future garden projects.
Duns is situated on the crossroads of the A6112 and A6105, approximately 14 miles west of Berwick upon Tweed and is easily accessible from the A1 onto the A6112 and from the A68/697 onto the A6105.
Teas/coffees/home-baking available to purchase at the Volunteer Hall where you can also purchase tickets and route maps. Local grown plants for sale. There are a number of other eateries in and around the Market Square for anyone who would like to make a day of it and enjoy a leisurely lunch or snack.
