Has MATLAB 2014a introduced a built in way of rotating axis labels? see here.
set(gca, 'XTICK', 1:3);
set(gca, 'XTICKLABEL', {'aaa', 'bbb', 'ccc'});
set(gca, 'Rotation', 45);
However this gives:
Error using hg.axes/set
The name 'Rotation' is not an accessible property for an instance of class 'axes'.
Have I misunderstood?

This works: set(get(gca,'YLabel'),'Rotation',-25);

Just works for labels, not for Ticks.

In R2014a, you need to replace the tick labels with text which can be rotated. here are a few utilities to help:

The above is R2014a.
R2014b has not shipped and the R2014b prerelease's features are confidential under NDA.

Now that release R2014b has shipped, I can confirm that tick label rotation was added in that release. See the "Other enhancements and new customization options" paragraph in the "New Visual Look" section of this documentation page.
