Tour Scotland video of photographs of Edzell Castle on on visit to Angus. A ruined 16th century Scottish castle, with an early 17th century walled garden. Edzell Castle was begun around 1520 by David Lindsay, 9th Earl of Crawford, and expanded by his son, Sir David Lindsay, Lord Edzell, who also laid out the garden in 1604. The castle saw little military action, and was, in its design, construction and use, more of a country house than a defensive structure. It was briefly occupied by English troops during Oliver Cromwell's invasion of Scotland in 1651. In 1715 it was sold by the Lindsay family, and eventually came into the ownership of the Earl of Dalhousie. A small selection of my personal photographs shot on small group tours of Scotland.
