Edzell Castle And Garden

Beautiful statement of the prestige of its owners, the Lindsays

Edzell Castle And Garden

The beauty of Edzell was a statement of the prestige of its owners, the Lindsays.

The stylised walled garden was created around 1604. Adorned 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.


  • The ‘great garden’ – a unique, and very beautiful, addition to the castle residence, best seen when the bedding plants are in full bloom.
  • The summer house – this delightful little building in a corner of the garden was where the Lindsays relaxed of a fine summer’s evening.
  • The tower house – a fine example of a typical 16th-century nobleman’s residence.
  • The Lindsay Aisle – the family’s burial vault in the ancient graveyard.
