This Castle is well cared for and offers a full interior tour. It has much history about the different owners and the towers that each one added as time passed. There are people staged throughout the castle to answer questions and give history about its rooms and artifacts. Plan to stay a while, it is rich with stories that will... More

A superb castle owned by the National Trust of Scotland, the history was wonderfully brought to life by members of staff stationed in each room.

Really enjoyed our visit to Fyvie Castle. The interior was very interesting, as we come from the South East of England it was lovely to see a real Scottish Castle. The gardens are really well kept. We enjoyed a nice cuppa & cake at the restaurant at the end of our visit.
