Pitmedden Garden was created in the 17th century by Sir Alexander Seton. A weather vane commemorates an incident near Aberdeen, where his father was killed by a cannonball when fighting for Charles 1. Now, all is peaceful. Be soothed by formal parterres and rows of clipped yews. Stand by the sundial and listen to oyster catchers. Stroll past pleached limes and the herb garden to find the Museum of Farming Life. Go home feeling rested after homebakes in the tearoom. Then come back in Autumn for apples, grown against granite walls.
