Cruickshank Botanic Gardens
The Cruickshank Botanic Gardens (herein referred to as Gardens) were built on land bequested by Miss Anne Cruikshank to commemorate her brother Dr. Alexander Cruickshank. The 11 acre garden is located in a low-lying and fairly sheltered area of Aberdeen, less than 1 mile from the North Sea. A map detailing the layout of the Gardens can be viewed by clicking here.
The Garden is partly owned and financed by the University of Aberdeen and partly by the Cruickshank Botanic Gardens Trust. The Friends of the Cruickshank Botanic Garden actively promote and support the garden.
