Royal Botanic Garden
Lonely Planet review for Royal Botanic Garden
Just north of Stockbridge is the lovely Royal Botanic Garden. Twenty-eight beautifully landscaped hectares include splendid Victorian palm houses, colourful swathes of rhododendrons and azaleas, and a world-famous rock garden. The Terrace Cafe offers good views towards the city centre.
Take Lothian Bus 8, 17, 23 or 27 to the East Gate, or the Majestic Tour bus.
