Lindsay Coat of Arms, garden Edzell Castle, Angus, Scotland by 


The Edzell Castle Garden was created in 1604 by David Lindsay and was known as the Great Garden. This walled garden still has the heraldic and symbolic sculptures in place. These include carved panels on the garden walls. These were themed the Seven Cardinal Virtues (Fides, Spes, Caritas, Prudentia, Temperantia, Fortitudo and Justitia) on the West Wall, the Seven Liberal Arts (Grammatica, Rhetorica, Dialectia, Arithmetica, Musica, Geometria and Astronomia) on the South Wall and the Seven Planetary Deities (Greek or Roman Gods of Luna, Mercury, Venus, Sol, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) on the East Wall. Some are replicas and the originals are kept on display on the Summer House to help preserve them. The photo shows the coat of arms of the Lindsays.

The scenery of Scotland, especially the Highlands where I have lived, in Inverness, for the past 32 years, is my passion but I love photographing many other subjects as well. I hope you enjoy any of my photographs that you buy and they give you as much pleasure to look at as I have in taking them. Thank you. Please note that I do NOT give permission to pin, post or use my images in any way and retain full copyright of them.

    Well they probably designed it!!

  • Would you believe you have to have it approved by the Lord Lyon, King of Arms and that post still exists?
