If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Branklyn Garden

Two acres of magnificent garden, set on the side of Kinnoull Hill overlooking Perth. Branklyn holds an impressive collection of rare and unusual plants.
This attractive garden, a haven of peace within walking distance of Perth, was developed by John and Dorothy Renton with the help of seed collections from plant hunters such as Forrest, Ludlow and Sherriff.
Gardeners and botanists come from all over the world to Branklyn to see the outstanding collection of plants particularly rhododendrons, alpines, herbaceous and peat-garden plants. Branklyn holds the National Collection of the striking and unusual vivid blue Himalayan poppy, Meconopsis. Other National Collections here are Cassiope and Rhododendron taliense.
