Cruickshank Botanic Garden is now fully open to all from 0900 – 1630 every day.  Please be aware of Covid-19 restrictions and adhere to the instructions provided on site. Unfortunately, there is no Zoology or Cruickshank building access and therefore no toilet available for use.

If the Met Office forecasts winds of 40mph or greater, the Arboretum and Central Lawn and Pond Garden will close and reduced access to the Southern section will also occur. When winds are forecast to exceed 40mph over a weekend, CBG will be closed.


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 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.
