History of Crathes Castle

Crathes Castle was originally a gift to the Burnett of Leys family of King Robert the Bruce granted in 1323. Construction of the castle began in the 14th century and the 15th by Burnett of Leys and was stopped due to political problems during the reign of Mary, Queen of Scotland. In 1596, Alexander Burnett finally completed the construction of this castle and starts a new project with the reconstruction of the 17th century. The project was completed by his son, Sir Thomas Burnett. Since then, this Castle became Burnetts of Leys heritage and given to the National Trust for Scotland in 1951.
