Pitmedden Gardens Aberdeenshire Scotland

Pitmedden Gardens, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Gardens were designed in the seventeenth century by Alexander Seton, formerly Lord Pitmedden, before James VII stripped him of his title for opposing Catholicism. Photographic Print of Pitmedden Gardens were designed in the seventeenth from AWL Discover Images.com.

This Scottish garden is noted for its geometric parterres which vary in shape from a thistle to Sir Alexander Seton's coat of arms. Pitmedden also has several long, varied borders which run along the garden walls. Sir Alexander Seton and Dame Margaret Lauder, his wife, established a house and garden at the site in 1675. The original garden was destroyed by fire in 1818.
