Dawyck Botanic Garden

Stobo, Peebles

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

Dawyck is truly one of the world’s finest arboreta. A woodland garden with something going on all year.

With an abundance of exotic and native plants providing a breathtaking backdrop of colour throughout the year. It has an ever changing seasonal garden from carpets of snowdrops and daffodils in early spring through to displays of azaleas, rhododendrons in early summer, culminating in the autumn with hues of red, orange and gold in the garden foliage.

One of the most photographed parts of the garden is the Azalea Terrace. Swiss Bridge is a landmark and upstream are the falls of Scrape Burn which in spring is flanked by a cascade of snowdrops. With a pond, a Beech Walk, a view of Dawyck House and the presence of Italian stonework linking the garden terraces and woodland paths there is plenty to see and photograph.

Part of the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
