  • The Winter Gardens at Duthie Park in Aberdeen are wonderful at any time of the year for those who love plants/gardening. So much to see and mostly all undercover. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • Our first visit today and wish we had gone sooner! The gardens are just beautiful with plants and flowers to delight sight and smell. Our grandchildren particularly enjoyed the tropical area, cactus gardens and banana tree. The gardeners on hand were always ready to answer questions. One of our party used a wheelchair, and while some routes have steps if you persevere I think every area is accessible. A must visit if you're in Aberdeen!
  • Beautifully kept gardens, well worth a visit, but make sure that you get there in plenty of time because they close at 17:30. There's a number of different habitats, ranging from arid to tropical, a Victorian garden and a Japanese garden (though I didn't find it this time).
