An evening tour with the Curator, Mark Paterson and Head Gardener, Richard Walker.

It has a large collection of flowering bulbs and rhododendrons, and many unusual shrubs and trees including two mature Camperdown Elms. It is sometimes known as The Secret Garden of Old Aberdeen.

The pedestrian garden entrance is off The Chanonry.
