Saughton Park

City of Edinburgh | Saughton | Park | ★★★

[Saughton Park]

With a stunning rose garden, kaleidoscopic borders, a physic garden and even its own ballad, Saughton Park is perhaps western Edinburgh's most attractive green space. The gardens have a long history, previously being part of the estate of Saughtonhall mansion, and later hosting the 1908 Scottish National Exhibition. But it's only in the last few years that the winter and rose gardens have been tidied up, the bandstand refurbished and even a new cafe - resulting in a thriving hub for the area, at least in the summertime. A meander of the Water of Leith borders the south side of the park, with riverside paths providing a scenic link to the city centre.
