Crathes Castle and Gardens

Home to the Burnett family for 350 years, the 16th Century Crathes Castle with its magnificent gardens is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved in the whole of Scotland. It was certainly a highlight of our trip to Aberdeenshire:

Incidentally I believe that the spectacular flower in shots 2 and 3 above is the Himalayan Blue Poppy.

    You’ve got a whole set of stunning photographs here, Mark. I know Crathes Castle well from my childhood so your images provoke lots of warm memories. I especially like the shot of the castle through the leaded window.

      Thanks Laura and glad it bought back nice memories. The shot through the window is one of my favourites from the whole trip 😊

    When I went to Crathes it was already closed…. So nice to see it in day light! You did a great work there! Love the photographs! 🙂
