St Andrews Botanic Gardens

UK»Scotland»Fife»St Andrews Botanic Gardens

St Andrews Botanic Gardens are hidden away from the main town and are well worth hunting down. There are several main areas, ranging from the rock garden and scree, with pools and waterfalls, to sheltered paths through large plantings of trees and shrubs. Herbaceous borders provide summer colour and the large glasshouses contain cacti and succulents and a large collection of alpines besides other plants from warmer regions such as South East Asia. Whatever the season, there is always something to see.
