With access down a narrow track and admission via honesty box, you'll probably be alone when you visit this hidden garden. Small but perfectly formed, the gardens feature 150 rose varieties and four 400-year old yew trees amidst a sea of bright colours. Malleny House completes the backdrop but takes away none of the secluded feel, all a few miles and a world away from Edinburgh.
