[Edzell Castle]

Edzell Castle was built as a tower house by the Earls of Crawford in the 16th century. Numerous extensions (now ruinous) and walled gardens came in the following decades - including a cute summer house at one corner. Today, the smooth lawns and works of art still perfectly complement the sandstone castle brickwork: Edzell Castle is one of Historic Scotland's most underrated locations. I mean, how could you resist a property with semi-tame peacocks strutting about everywhere?
