Looking at these photos – and particularly when you are actually at The Secret Herb Garden, it’s quite difficult to believe that you are just a hop and a skip from the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh.
But The Secret Herb Garden is mainly a lovely place to get away from the city and have a nice snack at the cafe.
We went all around the various garden areas first though and it feels just like being in the garden of a National Trust property, or something similar.
This is one of those places that we’ve been meaning to visit for ages. If you’re inclined towards distillery visiting you can do that too as there’s one just beyond the gardens which seems to make whisky and gin – as they just about all seem to nowadays. I don’t care how fashionable gin is, or whisky for that matter – I can’t stomach the stuff.
