The hillside gardens surrounding Inveresk Lodge, just south of Musselburgh, are composed of a series of ‘garden rooms’, each with its own season and theme. Among the main features are a croquet court, a woodland walk, a Victorian conservatory, an aviary and a meadow pond. Open all year round, this terraced garden uses displays of colourful herbaceous beds, shrubs and roses to illustrate methods that can be used in a domestic garden. NOV-MAR, Mon-Fri 10am-4.30pm, Sun 2pm-5pm.

A must-visit destination for all keen gardeners, this delightful hillside garden is just awaiting discovery. Tucked away within its stone boundary walls you will find unusual plants as well as familiar friends growing within mixed beds and borders. You'll also be drawn to the beautiful restored conservatory which is home to an aviary. The garden is a true treat for the senses with many scented plants and enchanting birdsong.

Beautiful gardens, so tranquil, but sad to see the signs of neglect 5ft high thistles in the flower borders, and ponds choked with weed. Hope this is addressed soon before it is too late!
