Description: A rare opportunity to appreciate a mature garden which, with the exception of one magnificent old copper beech tree, is completely planted and created by its owner Alison Glen. Designed with an artist's appreciation of form, this woodland garden shelters a large collection of rhododendrons. There are many beautiful specimen trees and shrubs including Hoheria glabrata, Helesia carolina and several Magnolia species. The garden is fully wheelchair accessible and there are several ways to move through it; from the Japanese inspired stream garden presided over by a mature Pinus wallichiana at one end, to the newly developed borders at the other.
Directions: Buses 11, 16, 15, 23, 5. By car: from the east - Chamberlain Road, Strathearn Road, from the north - Morningside Road, from the west - Colinton Road.
