I have been to Fyvie Castle grounds before but have not ventured in to the Castle. However armed with our National Trust passes we set of to explore the castle. It was really good, No guided tours just a simple set of arrows to show you the way and off you go to spend as long or as little time... More

Arrived mid morning and picked up a quiz sheet for my daughter and began our journey in the dining room. Very impressive room full of history. The guide in the morning room was very informative and told us interesting things about the items in the room and some info about the family. Guide in the library was very friendly and... More

The Castle is magnificent showing off 800 y of history. Wonderful interiors. Pleasant walk around the small lake in the grounds and the walled garden also worth a visit. The cafe was very small and has quite limited choice. Lunch stops at 14.30h (soup and sandwiches) and after that, just cake and biscuits. The Castle is really outstanding but felt... More

This castle was difficult to find with a sat nav but we were glad we persevered! The Castle and it's ground were stunning although we didn't get a chance to explore properly as the heavens opened but we spent a good while looking around the beautiful castle interior. It was so refreshing to have a guide in each room and... More

The National Trust for Scotland team at Fyvie Castle were exemplary in arranging the wedding we attended on 25 July 2015. The ceremony and festivities were delightful in one of the best wedding venues in the UK. The castle and its function rooms are beautifully appointed , underpinned by fascinating history. The catering for the wedding breakfast was of the... More

Hugely impressive from the outside. Beautiful interiors with important collection of paintings, especially Raeburn. Many high-quality portraits of varied date. Unfortunately the NTS does not allow photography inside - which is behind the times and out of step with its counterpart in England and Wales. Compulsory guided tours most of the year (although free-flow in peak period) which made my... More

This building started out as a mediaeval castle, but has been modernised, improved, added-to, etc. by owners with very different needs over the centuries. The result is an eclectic mixture of furnishings etc. An incredible little collection of the most intricate Meissner porcelain sticks in my mind as the only highlight.

Just returned from a brill day out at Fyvie Castle, you receive a warm welcome from their staff who are very patient in answering questions about the history of the castle. When Mum struggled with stairs we were told to use the lift. Apologies to the lady we met at the 3rd floor (private residents) and for kindly informing us... More
