The Botanic Cottage

The Botanic Cottage is simultaneously the newest and oldest building in the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. It is an inspirational hub for community and education activities.

The Botanic Cottage today

The Botanic Cottage now hosts a wide variety of education and community sessions, as well as public events, throughout the year. The cottage is primarily used for community groups to run closed workshops, but on selected dates we put on events which can be enjoyed by the wider public - check our What's On listings for details.
