Crathes Castle Garden

A sixteenth century castle with a twentieth century Arts and Crafts garden. It might be described as 'The Sissinghurst of Scotland'. The baronial tower, beside which the garden stands, dates from the late 1500s. For centuries the tower stood in lonely isolation, protecting the Burnett family and allowing them fine views of the woods and moors. In the twentieth century a fine garden was made by Sir James Burnett of Leys. It is a walled garden with sculptured topiary and brilliant planting.
