This trail showcases examples of eighteen of Scotland’s most significant woodland trees. A tour of these maturing specimens will take the visitor on an informative circular wander around the Inverleith Garden.

Not all the trees featured in the trail are true Scottish natives. A small number are historic introductions that have become extensively naturalised in our woodlands or by planting and are now key components of the Scottish landscape.

The trail contains 18 specimens, from among the 1800 trees we have in our collection – part of the fun will be in the hunt! The trail is numbered heading from the John Hope Gateway in a northerly direction, it can be followed in either direction, or started from the East Gate. Those trees in the trail are marked with an interpretative panel.

The trail takes around 1 hour to complete.
