For all those associated with or interested in the name of BURNETT and its history and traditions throughout the world.
The Burnett family is one of the most illustrious of Scottish families, with a history going back to before the Norman Conquest and a record of many distinguished members in the church, in letters, in the law and in the military.
The principal historical seat of the Burnetts is Crathes Castle and was given to the National Trust for Scotland in 1952. However, Crathes remains the Burnett family home to which all Burnetts and those descended from Burnetts are always welcome and whom we are always pleased to meet.
James and Alexander Burnett of Leys with Burnett Lieutenants, Jackelyn Daugherty, President House of Burnett, and James Burnette.
“I have been passionate about Burnett Heritage all my life. For last 50 years, I have enjoyed sharing it with Burnetts and visitors to Crathes, in Burnett gatherings and visits beyond. I hope your next visit is memorable and enjoyable.” James Burnett of Leys, Chief of the name of Burnett
