Cortachy Castle Gardens - The building dates from the 15th century, preceded by an earlier structure that was owned by the Earls of Strathearn.

It was acquired by the Ogilvies in 1473 and modified in the 17th and 19th centuries.

In 1820 it was romanticised, as per the fashion of the day, by the addition of crenellations, plus other alterations.

Tour Scotland video of East Princes Street Gardens, looking north east from the Mound, showing the Scott Monument, Balmoral Hotel and Waverley Station with the North Bridge behind it on ancestry visit to the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. Princes Street Gardens is a public park in the centre of Edinburgh, Scotland, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle. The Gardens were created in two phases in the 1770s and 1820s following the long draining of the Nor Loch and building of the New Town, beginning in the 1760s. The loch, situated on the north side of the town, was originally an artificial creation forming part of its medieval defences and made expansion northwards difficult. The water was habitually polluted from sewage draining downhill from the Old Town. In 1846 the railway was built in the valley to connect the Edinburgh to Glasgow line at Haymarket with the new northern terminus of the North British line from Berwick-upon-Tweed at Waverley Station.
