This is an amazing, beautiful, free attraction: As such the eateries are busy when the weather is good. The terrace restaurant is all grown up and calm but we could not get a terrace table as they were all reserved. The cafe up the hill...More

Great for an Afternoon Stroll, even on a damp / drizzly day, as the greenery really comes alive. DO stop by the Glass House and half the fun is feeding those cheeky squirrels :)

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement

There is no entry fee to the gardens themselves but if you want to go into the glass houses there is a fee of £5 per adult.
