This beautiful and peaceful 11 acre garden offers year round interest to visitors. It has shrub borders, a rock and water garden, sunken garden, rose garden, herbaceous border and an arboretum, and houses a nationally important collection of over 2500 labelled plants.
The Cruickshank Botanic Garden is situated in Old Aberdeen on the King's College campus of the University of Aberdeen and is a partnership between the University and the Cruickshank Charitable Trust. The Garden exists to promote an appreciation of the beauty, diversity and importance of plants, and an understanding of their role in the natural world.
Founded in 1898, the Garden is true to its origins, and provides an educational resource both for University students and for the thousands of schoolchildren who visit the Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre, as well as a wonderful amenity for staff, students and the general public.
