This is a fairly compact but very well run botanical garden with a great diversity of exhibits and academic connections in Edinburgh. Nice cafe too.

Great place to visit for spending a day wandering around the various displays. Best done on a good dry day for all the outside displays. Relax when ready in the shop and cafe
