I believe the castle would be Crathes Castle, which is now part of the
National Trust. One of my husband's ancestor's (a Jaffray) married a
Christian Burnett in the 1650's and seemingly the castle was part of that
family. I have not done the research yet, but this is family lore. The
Burnett family was then known as the "Burnett's of Leys".
Sorry I can't be of more help.
