Cruickshank Botanic Garden

Founded in 1898, 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.

This beautiful and peaceful 4.5 hectare (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 more than 2500 taxa.
