Over a quarter of the land in Aberdeen is made up of open parkland areas. The spectacular Duthie Park is spread across 44 acres and has been delighting visitors since 1883. The David Welch Winter Gardens at the heart of the park house the largest collection of Cacti in Britain. Probably not something you first thought you would find in Aberdeen!
Johnston Gardens, near the Rubislaw Quarry, is a magical green space with streams, waterfalls, ponds, a rustic bridge and a children’s pay area. Many bridal couples visit these memorable gardens to take wedding photos. Travel to Royal Deeside for a stroll round the grounds of Balmoral Castle to see how the British royal family like their gardens tended.
