Crathes Castle / one

Picture ref CR1

The tower house was built in the 1550s and finished in 1596 . Later on a Queen Anne wing was added in the early 1700s and a Victorian wing . In 1966 both were burned down and only the Queen Anne wing was rebuilt . The jewelled ivory horn hanging in the hall was a gift from Robert the Bruce in the 1300s . Crathes Castle has walled gardens and the grounds are quite extensive with nature trails up to 4 miles long .

The castle is a National Trust property and it is on the A93 east of Banchory , about 15 miles from Aberdeen .

The castle is a short walk from the car park . A 35mm lens is sufficient to photograph the castle . I used a 100 to 300 mm zoom lens for this picture , set at 100mm .
