Crathes Castle bnm7831jhp 
 Crathes Castle Gardens Upper Pool Burnett croquet lawn summer topiary Deeside Aberdeenshire Scotland which then leads you either down between the yew topiary to the Blue and Rose Gardens, or back past the croquet lawn into the gardens proper and in June to the June Border one of the main attractions of this historic property which dates from the 16th century although the land belonged to the Burnett’s of Leys as a gift from Robert the Bruce in 1323. In the great hall is the Horn of Leys, supposedly a symbol of this grant.

The tower house is one of the finest examples of the period and some of the original wall paintings still survive. Entry into the walled garden is at the west side and the main path into the gardens is through the white borders and onto the path down the June Borders to the bottom of the walled garden where there is a Doocot an attractive feature and useful high point for looking up the June Border, the summer jewel resplendent with many colourful plants, with the Castle as its impressive backdrop. Turning left at the main entrance leads to the Aviary Borders and Terrace, past the Camel Garden and climbing the steps enters the upper level with the Croquet Lawn and Lady Burnett or Upper Pool Garden.

Please contact their Edinburgh Head Office at Hermiston Quay, 5Cutlins Road, Edinburgh, EH11 4DF.
