Dr Neil's Garden

[Dr Neil's Garden]

Dr Neil's Garden can be found on the sunny southern slopes of Arthur's Seat: a beautiful and unexpected oasis of calm barely a mile from Edinburgh city centre. The garden was created by a pair of GP's, who encouraged patients to help tend to the garden, benefit from the fresh air and enjoy the calm atmosphere. Although small, the various terraces and views over Duddingston Loch make the garden feel bigger than it really is. The founders passed away in 2005 and Dr Neil's Garden is now run by a trust; nevertheless the garden seems to have kept its original charm and tranquility, which in fact extends beyond its borders to the cobbled streets of Duddingston itself.
