The charm of Fyvie ranges from its 13th-century origins to its stunning Edwardian interiors. The castle is home to a superb collection of arms, armour and paintings, including works by Raeburn and Gainsborough. Stroll around the picturesque loch, or visit the restored 1903 racquet court and bowling alley. Ghosts, legends and folklore are all woven into the tapestry of Fyvie Castle's 800-year history. Tradition claims that the castle's five successive families - Preston, Meldrum, Seton, Gordon and Forbes-Leith - each added a tower to this magnificent Scottish Baronial fortress. You can see their influences today among the medieval stones and the lavish Edwardian interiors, and imagine what castle life must have been like for the families and their royal guests - among them Robert the Bruce, Edward I and Charles I.

This castle is beautiful. The fireplace in the dinning room is so intricate and the wood has an interesting history. The crystal goblets on display were by far my favorite - they are exquisite. Also the organ/music room was beautiful, further examples of the rescued...More

A beautiful castle where Prince Charles celebrated his 60th birthday in 2008, and still comes sometimes when he’s at Balmoral. The rooms are so amazing, with beautiful decorations on the walls. All the staff there have great anecdotes about the castle, and make your visit...More
