We visited Edzell Castle today for the first time and what a thoroughly enjoyable place to see it was. The castle is basically ruins but the walled gardens are amazing. The staff were very helpful and also pointed out quite a few other local sights to see whilst we were there. What made my day however, was the peacocks! One was sitting right next to the gate and when it saw me it did it's full "show", demonstrating its beautiful tail feathers and even appeared to be posing for photographs! It was a very noisy bird but looked absolutely beautiful. The ruins are fascinating and the layout of the castle buildings intriguiging. On a beautiful day the gardens looked fantastic and although it's still early for the best floral display, the box hedges were beautifully kept. Well worth a visit and if it's a nice day take a picnic!
