The beautiful walled garden at Edzell is one of Scotland's unique sights, created by Sir David Lindsay in 1604. Edzell was home to the Lindsays, a gifted yet tragic noble family whose head became the Earl of Crawford and one of the most powerful men in the realm. The Lindsay’s most famous guests include Mary Queen of Scots in 1562 and her son James VI in 1580 and 1589. The 'Pleasance' is a delightful formal garden with walls decorated with sculptured stone panels, flower boxes and niches for nesting birds. Explore the summer house, the great garden, the 16th century tower house and Lindsay Aisle - the family burial vault.
The villiage and castle are best visited on a sunny day. Small, but lots to see and enjoy, particularly if you like walking.

Wonderfully quaint crossing over the North Esk in Edzell, access road (Gassy Brae) is between MacKay's garage and Old Post Office (sorely missed), well worth a visit.

My wife and I had heard about this place, and sought to find it on Easter Sunday, the 16th April.
It is situated about 1 mile out of Edzell on the B966 road heading towards Fettercairn. Just immediately after crossing the Gannochy Bridge you will see a few parking spaces at the side of the road on your left, this is where you want to park.
After parking up you will see the 'blue door'.
Enter the blue door to commence 'the burn river walk'.
For us it was like entering another world (my wife compared it to 'Narnia' where they go through the wardrobe and enter another world!!!).
We had no idea that this would turn out to be such a beautiful walk, it definitely surpassed our expectations. One gentleman that we spoke to during our walk maintains it is the best walk in Scotland!
This is a river walk with stunning scenery, tree-lined paths, rapids and Waterfalls.
We saw many out in kayaks making their way down the River Esk during our visit.
Overall, quite a lengthy walk but we enjoyed every minute of it, and would very highly recommend it to tourists, or to anyone who hasn't done it yet.
One important piece of advice though - If you intend doing the walk with children, especially young children, I would highly recommend that you keep a tight hold of their hand/s, as there are some very steep drops at certain parts throughout the walk.

As a kid visiting Edzell I always dreamed of owning this beautiful building, later, staying at Angus house with the school, I got to go in it.....amazing stained glass windows. I don't think I ever visit Edzell without taking yet another photo of it. Well worth a visit when it's open.

Bedlam Paintball EdzellBedlam Paintball Edzell is conveniently located to serve visitors from Aberdeen, Dundee, Stonehaven, Brechin and the surrounding Angus and Grampian area.Bedlam Paintball Edzell offers a thrilling variety of realistic Game Zones, each serving as backdrop to a carefully plotted game scenario. In the midst of the Edzell Woods, you may suddenly find yourself facing a grim, fortified tower; a spooky, abandoned village; or bleak and desolate badlands.
5 of us went to Bedlam's Edzell site for a friends birthday. Lets start with the positives... The game it's self was great fun and I would highly recommend it to anyone. They had lots of different game zones which made the day very interesting.
We ordered the 300 paintball package which were gone by the end of the second game. I would advise that you take cash with you. You don't want to spend time sitting out of games because you are trying to ration your pain balls or because you run out. It's not a cheap day we spent almost an additional £200 on paintballs but It was worth it for the fun we had.
The site it's self is dirty and could do with a good tidy up, some of the game areas had rubbish everywhere and looked like they hadn't bothered to clean up in some time. The equipment was well past it's best, we went through countless amount of guns because they stopped working and lost a lot of paint balls in the process! The masks were so scuffed up that you could barley see out of them.
The staff have zero sense of humor and were too busy Barking at people to remember that they were there to enjoy the day. One of the instructors spent the day chain smoking and swearing. No professionalism whatsoever.
I would recommend that you make sure to wear gloves, a scarf and a hat to make sure all your skin is covered.
Also take lunch with you as all there shop sells is over priced pot noodles.
I would also think for something that is being advertised as a team building exercise they would allow the guests a bit more freedom to decide how they want to play the game.
