 Crathes Castle Deeside blue garden lavender fountain Scotland summer sunshine Aberdeenshire one of the several specialist gardens at 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 large urn is the centrepiece of this small garden tucked away at south east corner of the walled garden.
The tower house is one of the finest examples of the period and some of the original wall paintings still survive. At the bottom of the walled garden, near the Red Garden 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.
