Buy A Christmas Tree
Nothing Beats the Sight and Smell of a Real Christmas Tree
Tayside Forestry harvests almost 85,000 trees a year and from our base here at Templeton Farm. A visit to the farm has become a family tradition for many households in Dundee and the surrounding area. Coming to Templeton Farm for many of our customer is the start of the magic of Christmas. It’s a great place to forget about the commercialism of Christmas shopping or trying to track down this year’s must have toy.
As well as trees, you can pick up tree stands, wreaths, lights and even firewood. Once you have chosen your tree why not treat yourself to a hot chocolate and some home baking in the Pine Cone Café and perhaps choose some new baubles to decorate your tree.

How do I find you?
Located on the outskirts of Dundee, just 3.5 miles from the city centre, we are easily accessible from both Perth and Dundee. Follow the signs for Coupar Angus (A923) off the Kingsway West (A90). After you pass the entrance to Camperdown Park go straight on and take a right following the signposts for Birkhill Cemetary and Templeton Woods. Go straight on (watch out for the red squirrels) and at the foot of the hill turn right and you will see Templeton Christmas Tree Farm up ahead.
Is there Car Parking?
Yes we have two tarmac car parks with 100 marked bays at the farm. The car parks can be very busy especially over the weekends of 10 & 11 December and 17 & 18 December. If you want to come when it is a bit quieter, midweek or earlier in the day s best.
What payment methods do you take?
We accept all debit and credit cards except Amex and Diners or we can take cash payments.
Can I book a table in the Pine Cone Cafe?
Sorry, we do not take bookings for the cafe. You should see if a table is available and then place an order for food and drinks at the till. The cafe is exceptionally busy at this time of year and I am afraid that due to demand we are not always able to cater for everyone visiting the farm. We have however introduced a take away service and also have a pre-made 'to go' selection.
Can I book afternoon tea in the Pine Cone Cafe in December?
Afternoon tea has become very popular but during December, because of the number of people visiting the farm at this time of year, we will not be taking booking for afternoon tea after 18 November. We will however be able to take booking from when we reopen after Christmas and on into 2017.
