  • Amisfield Walled Garden

    Dating from the late 18th Century it is one of the largest walled gardens in Scotland with extensive herbaceous borders, fruit and vegetable beds, wildflower meadow, orchard and woodland plantings. Amisfield is a community garden managed by the Amisfield Preservation Trust and a large band of volunteers during four volunteering sessions each week. It provides a venue for education and training for people of all abilities. The garden is becoming increasingly popular as a visitor destination, with well over 1,000 people visiting each year. The woodland and meadow surrounding the garden are popular with local walkers.

    How to find us

    Amisfield Walled Garden can be visited on foot (one mile) from the Nungate area of Haddington via the road to the Golf Club, and continuing along the footpath beyond the club house. An alternative route by foot is by the path on the north bank of the River Tyne, crossing the river at the Abbey Bridge, and entering the Park by the east gate. The garden can be reached by road from the minor road which is the first turning right on the A199 between Haddington and East Linton.
