Aberdeenshire is CASTLE COUNTRY. There are lots of castles to visit. This one is Crathes Castle near Banchory.
Crathes was home to the Burnett family for 350 years, but now belongs to the National Trust for Scotland. The original castle was built in 1323. The present castle was built between 1596 to 1600. Crathes is fully furnished & has strong connections with Robert the Bruce. Unfortunatlly no photography is allowed inside which is true in most of the National Trust's properties.
Address: 3 miles from Banchory & 14 miles from Aberdeen
