  • This place is hard to find. To get in you have to either open the gate on main road or go into the Kirk and take a sharp left through a cafe. Once you actually work out how to get in its brilliant. Big, free and peaceful with loads of great nooks and crannies with seats all over. Best in summer but still has herbs that you can smell in other months. Some of the paths may be unsuitable for wheelchair users. Great free hideaway. When you comeer out go try the pub up the road called 'The sheep's heid', it's from the 14 century.
  • Unbelievable place! Gorgeous garden with many features and areas. Views over Duddingston Loch. So peaceful.
  • Lovley place you will able to sit there for hours... bit confusing to enter though...if you are coming from church lane its on left just before duddingston church
  • Really nice garden
  • Hidden away just behind Duddingston Kirk lies Dr Neil's Garden, a beautifully, secluded garden that is perfect for a little afternoon stroll. To enter, go through the gate called Manse House, turn right and cross diagonally over the patch of grass. There you enter into the garden, full of flowers, winding paths and seats to sit and stare out onto Duddingston loch. I definitely recommend you go in the spring when the colours in the garden are starting to come to life.
