Kailzie GardensPeebles, Scottish Borders
Kailzie Gardens, located about 2.5 miles from Peebles town centre in the Scottish Borders, provide a rich variety of colour and charm throughout the year for both the keen gardener, and for the visitor who just wants to enjoy a beautiful garden in peaceful surroundings.
The gardens are a lovely place to go for a stroll in beautiful surroundings, the large walls covered in a variety of climbing plants to spot, plus a load of different shrubs. There is also a large greenhouse to explore, with a large old wisteria in the centre to marvel at, plus a number of interesting conservatory plants.
If you visit in the Spring, be sure to check out the Wild Garden, which is filled with Snowdrops, followed by a magnificent carpet of Bluebells and Daffodils. You can also see what is said to be the oldest Larch in Scotland!
The gardens have some lovely paths and walks to follow, plus the many different species of trees and plants provide a home for a rich variety of bird life, so bring your binoculars or camera. You will also encounter a number of waterfowl on the River Tweed, including Oyster Catchers, Wagtails, Kingfishers, and Heron.
Apart from the gardens, there are a number of principal attractions for a full family day out, including live viewing of the Tweed Valley ospreys, a gift shop, tearoom, licensed restaurant, Children's Corner, putting green, bait and fly fishing ponds, a private 2.5 mile stretch on the River Tweed for fly fishing, and a picnic area.
