The Friends of the Barnhill Rock Garden is a formally constituted body with charitable status and acts as a support group, liaising with Dundee City Council's Environment Division on issues relating to the well-being of the garden.
The Friends support the garden with financial help to provide seed, bulbs and plants to ensure the future of the long-established collection of plant material from all corners of the world. They also carry out various gardening activities throughout the year and maintain a number of borders which would otherwise be lost to cultivation. Although this kind of help is encouraged and appreciated, it is not a condition of membership!
Membership is open to all and the current subscription (£8 single and £10 for a family) enables members to take part in a varied programme of summer garden visits and winter talks, mostly garden-related. The Rock Garden is on the Scottish Tourist Board tourist trail and is open to the public at all times.
If you would like to join the Friends and help their efforts to maintain and promote this special garden, please contact the group directly.
Combine a visit to the garden with seal-watching or bird-watching while enjoying beautiful views across the River Tay.
There are picnic tables and seats, and toilet facilities are nearby. There are no entrance fees.
There is easy car parking and the garden is only minutes walk from the nearest bus stop.
