  • Yes its lovely. But i sort of think looking at photos online is better than the reality of queueing, waiting, no toilets etc. They need to limit numbers, get police or professionals involved to manage...  more »

  • Brilliant experience worth visiting. Lookout for the opening date for next year as it opens for public only one day a year usually april end.
  • We were blessed with great wether. This was an interesting experience in beautiful setting. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, not wheelchair friendly ( thankfully my wife and i brought slings to carry our twins, so we managed just fine )and there always seemed to be que fornthe toilets. But would recommend it.
  • Very interesting & good day out but very busy so get there early.
  • Beautiful gardens only open once a year.very busy to get in and big traffic queues.
  • Brilliant and imaginative garden surprises around every corner.

Where to stay in Dumfries

As Dumfries is just a small city within the Dumfries and Galloway region, the city itself is somewhat limited on places to stay. You'll find a handful of mid-range to high-end hotels in the city--if you're intent on being based in Dumfries, it's best to book early to avoid disappointment. Otherwise, there are plenty of options in nearby cities and towns such as Sanquhar, Lockerbie, Auchencairn, and Thornhill.
