Corstorphine Hill Walled Garden

Built as a walled-garden for Hillwood House in the Clerwood district of Edinburgh, the garden extends to 0.48 ha (1.2 acres) on the western slopes of Corstorphine Hill. Having become disused and overgrown, the garden was restored and is maintained by the Friends of Corstorphine Hill, and was featured on BBC Scotland's Beechgrove Garden in 2001 and 2004. The intention was to build a garden that was a microcosm of the vegetation found on Corstorphine Hill, which is accessible to less-able individuals and provides an educational resource. The garden is divided into different areas planted with native trees, such as ash, pine and birch, together with shrubs and some exotic trees, undersown with native grasses.
