Overview

Get a sense of the standing of the Lindsay family from the beauty of their lordly seat. Its highlight is the great garden added in 1604, which has enclosing walls featuring decoration unique in Britain.

What to see and do

  • Amble around the great garden, a unique and very beautiful addition, best seen when the bedding plants are in bloom (early July).
  • Seek out the delightful summer house where the Lindsays would relax on a fine summer’s evening
  • Look inside the tower house, a fine example of a typical 16th-century nobleman’s residence
  • Visit the Lindsay Aisle – the family’s burial vault – in the ancient graveyard near Edzell
