Eines der schönsten Schlösser, welches nur der Kunst dient. Sehr schön ist auch der Kaffee-Garten am Bach. Sehr erhohlsame Stunden.

Lovely setting. Some great modern art in the form of statues displayed around the grounds and in the lovingly restored chateau. The exhibition within the chateau was not to my taste but that did not detract from our visit. The cascade near the restaurant is beautifully set.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
