Broadcaster and producer Frieda Morrison is to make a series of films for the National Trust for Scotland.

The National Trust for Scotland has announced that broadcaster and producer Frieda Morrison is to make a series of films to mark the Diamond Jubilee celebrations at Crathes Castle. Frieda, who has worked for BBC Scotland for 25 years, has been chosen by the NTS to share Crathes Castle gardens with a global audience.

The first in the series of online films will be released at the end of June, with five more films released over the coming months. Frieda said of the project: 'Because of my years as a producer and presenter, I have great links with lots of the Trust’s gardeners and know the gardens well having featured many in programmes.

'I think that these gardeners are the unsung heroes of Scotland, caring for these horticultural treasures of Scotland – these beautiful gardens. So working with the Trust, I’m trying to raise the profile of the gardens and the gardeners. Crathes is one of my favourite of all places. It’s one of the most significant gardens in the world – a globally important site for its design and range of plants - a true jewel in the crown.'
