Redcroft is a mature walled garden surrounding an attractive Arts and Craft house. It is a hidden haven off a busy road with a variety of different features and habitats: an orchard, a rockery, a pond, shrubberies, a large lawn and contrasting longer grass. It is well maintained with many clipped shrubs and some cloud pruning. Early May is very colourful with rhododendrons and many other flowering shrubs and wall plants, and the greenhouse is full of tender plants. There will be tulips in pots and many other bulbs. Some large conifers have recently been felled, letting in extra light and offering a new opportunity for planting.
Murrayfield Road runs north from Corstorphine Road to Ravelston Dykes. There is easy parking available which is free. Buses 12, 26, 31, get off at Murrayfield Stadium and 38 which goes down Murrayfield Road.
