Overview
More
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.

We found this to be better than most castles we visited in the area. It has very interesting and impressive furnishings. On weekdays they do guided tours only, which we felt was much more interesting and informative than if we had just wandered around ourselves.

Spent an afternoon at Fyvie Castle last week. We were given an excellent informative tour with a guide called Tina (we think that was her name). Highly recommend a visit to this property.
