Pitmedden Garden's inception dates back to 1675, when Alexander Seton designed a formal walled garden here to complement his adjacent house. The house burned down and the gardens were abandoned in the early 19th century, but the decades since have brought the property back from the brink. William Seton soon replaced the house and the National Trust for Scotland later begun the task of restoring the grounds to their 17th century design. The results - especially the lower levels - are stunning, even more so if you imagine they might even have looked like this over 300 years ago. The house is largely private but the adjacent Museum of Farming Life isn't - this is included in the admission price.
