The Gardens are about 3 ½ miles outside Aberfeldy and are signposted from the B846 leaving the town heading across the Tay and following the riverside. The final section of road up to the property is single track (surfaced) with few passing places however we were fortunate not to encounter anything coming in the opposite direction. There’s a small car... More

We had a wonderful time visiting the Cluny House Gardens and even got to meet the gardener himself! Highly recommended if you are a gardener and want to get some ideas for your own 100 year plan.

A definite "must" in the Aberfeldy area, one of my favourite gardens at any time of the year- well laid out, interesting and stunning planting schemes, this garden is a real testament to the owners commitment to creating a Himalayan garden. Informal yet structured the garden offers something in every season!

Cycled to gardens from Aberfeldy. A fair old pull up the final road. Honesty box for payment. Natural type garden with some lovely views. In July, the giant lillies were the main feature. I did not have time to look round whole garden and wish I had taken a picnic lunch. Will return again later in year so bought an... More

If you want to see the squirrels be there for 9 am when they are fed and stay in the main car park to watch, leave dogs in the car. We got some amazing photos and the squirrels come up really close

A beautiful woodland garden on a hillside. It will be lovely in spring with lots of rhododendrons and azaleas and in the autumn due to the maples. Not much in flower in July so a little disappointing.

A beautiful garden that I came to several times as a child, but haven't been here for at least 20 years. It's even more beautiful than I remember, and so different from the 'average' garden that is open to the public. Highly recommend, especially in spring when the primulas are in flower.

We have been here on several occasions at different times of the year and have always found lots of interest. This time parts of the woodland were carpeted with pink erythroniums in full flower, and we also enjoyed a wide variety of other spring bulbs and rhododendrons. There is a very good leaflet to guide you round the garden, which... More

There are lots to see in the woodland gardens, giant trees, colourful flowers and we were lucky to see 3 red squirrels too. We chatted to the gardener who was very welcoming and knowledgable and boughts some plants to bring home. At £5 each for entry this was good value and a great place to visit
