This outstanding 20 ha (50 a) garden, part of a 890 ha (2,200 a) Highland estate, is impressively set on a peninsula on the shores of Loch Ewe.
Leith Hall is at the centre of a 113 ha (279 a) estate which was the home of the head of the Leith family from 1650.
The centrepiece of this property is the Great Garden, originally laid out in 1675 by Sir Alexander Seton, 1st Baronet of Pitmedden.
This attractive little garden in Perth was once described as 'the finest two acres of private garden in the country'.
Set in parkland, Brodie Castle is old but the family association with the area is even older.
The most elaborate Z-plan castle in Scotland, and one of the grandest Castles of Mar, was begun in 1575 by the 6th laird, Michael Fraser, and incorporates an earlier building.
This fairytale-like castle, which exemplifies some of the best Scottish Baronial architecture, seems to have grown naturally out of the beautiful rolling hillsides of Aberdeenshire.
The castle, built in the second half of the 16th century, is a superb example of a tower house of the period.
The oldest intact building in the care of the National Trust for Scotland.
Edzell Castle & Garden
A remarkable and very beautiful complex with a late medieval tower house incorporated into a 16th-century courtyard mansion.
Unusual for Aberdeenshire in that it is not a castle, Haddo House is proud to be the most homely of the north-east of Scotland's great houses open to the public.
House of Dun
Georgian house overlooking the Montrose Basin, designed and built by William Adam in 1730 for David Erskine, Lord Dun.
