Crathes Castle

Crathes Castle meets all the requirements for a satisfactory National Trust site: there's an old building of historical significance that's only open five hours a year, a bit of woodland, a bulb shop, and a café where the soup of the day is always carrot and coriander.

The benefit of going for a day trip to Crathes when it's so cold you can feel the skin peeling away from your face is that you can walk around the totally empty gardens and feel like Mary Lennox.

 This tree has a face. It's probably definitely a tree spirit that would tell me to ~listen with my heart~ if I waited around long enough.
