A village in the Formartine district of Aberdeenshire, Pitmedden lies on the Bronie Burn, 4 miles (6 km) southwest of Ellon. Pitmedden Garden, with its formal parterres, herb garden and wildlife garden, was originally laid out in 1675 by Sir Alexander Seton, 1st Baronet of Pitmedden. In 1952 the property was given to the National Trust for Scotland by Major James Keith and in 1978 the trustees of William Cook of Little Meldrum handed over to the Trust a collection of agricultural and domestic artifacts that were used to form the nucleus of a Museum of Farming Life. Also nearby is Udny Green with its castle and churchyard containing an unusual mort house.
