 Crathes Castle June Border lupins purple flowers colours summer garden path Deeside Aberdeenshire Scotland one of the centre pieces is the walled garden of this historic property of which this is the famous June Border past its best thanks to a combination of wind and lack of sunny days giving a late visit. The building 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.
