Crathes Castle
JPW220 Crathes Castle

An impressive 16th century stone L-plan tower house of four storeys and an attic, founded by the Burnett family, the castle is particularly famous for its Jacobean painted ceilings, only uncovered in 1877.

One of the most historic objects is the Horn of Leys, a jewelled ivory horn on display in the hall. It is thought to have been given by Robert the Bruce to the Burnetts in 1323 when he granted them the Lands of Leys. The castle was built between 1553 and around 1596 and stayed in the hands of the same family until 1951 when Sir James Burnett presented Crathes to the National Trust for Scotland.
