Fairytale-like turrets, gargoyles of fantastic design and the ancient Horn of Leys given in 1323 by Robert the Bruce are just a few of the features of this historic castle.
The Crathes gardens and estate are ideal for a family day out. A delight at any time of year, the famous gardens feature great yew hedges and colourful double herbaceous borders.
