Edzell Castle and Gardens

Edzell Castle and Gardens

The refined beauty of Edzell was a statement of the prestige of its owners, the Lindsays. The stylized walled garden was created in 1604. Resplendent with heraldic sculptures and carved panels, the architectural framework surrounding the garden is unique in Britain. The garden also includes walled flower and nesting boxes and a delightful summer house.
