Reviewed December 7, 2013

Lovely food this afternoon at Fernie Castle Hotel. Soup, Finger sandwiches Scones (to die for) and a lovely selection of very light cakes and macaroons and great service. Highly recommended give it a try.

My husband and I stayed in the treehouse for a Christmas treatand we loved everything about the place.
A nice welcome at the castle reception before heading to the tree house. Arriving at the treehouse in the dark was lovely, staff had put lights on for us and it was really cosy.
We got a huge basket of goodies: cheese & biscuits, chocolates, fresh baking, chocolate biscuits, crisps, beers, a variety of soft drinks and champagne.
A delicious 4 course meal was served in the castle and the service was attentive but not over powering. Breakfast also in the castle was tasty.
All in all we had a perfect romantic night away and would highly recommend it to anyone.

We had a delightful time at Fernie Castle, the setting was perfect for a wedding and the location would serve as an excellent place to explore Fife. The food was absolutely wonderful and the rooms were really nice.
We all loved the spiral stairs and winding corridors – just what you would expected in an historic building. The vaulted cellar bar is guaranteed to amaze you.
However, it was the staff that made it a special day and stay, they were absolutely fantastic especially the Laird (Neil Blackburn).
In summary, a delightful place with a great atmosphere and brilliant staff- you’d be hard pressed to find fault here!

When we heard that our son planned to come over from Canada to Scotland for his wedding, we thought that Fernie Castle would be the perfect place for the wedding reception … and it was.

Over the months leading up to the wedding, Neil Blackburn (the Laird) helped us with the arrangements and nothing was too much trouble considering that this involved communicating with the groom and bride to be in Canada. Over the two nights, family and guests were accommodated in wide range of rooms including turret rooms, suites with four poster beds and no one was disappointed with the facilities available within the room or hotel. The bride and groom were completely enthralled with their time in the amazing tree house complete with Jacuzzi. The highland cattle in the grounds also provided a welcome source of photographs.

The Ceremony was conducted on the front lawn with the castle in the background with the piper playing. A truly memorable scene especially for the Canadians, many of whom had never visited Scotland before but vowed to come back

The50+ guests were served in the Great Hall and the menu offered a good choice of excellent food, beautifully presented and with first class service throughout. The Laird acting as MC for the evening

The band was superb and even they commented “that the wedding was one of the best they had been at”

Truly a good location,quiet but close to Cupar, St Andrews and other historic parts of Fife.
We truly enjoyed the experience and every guest would highly recommend Fernie Castle

My husband, daughter (3 years) and I stayed at Fernie Castle with a tour, musicians with families and it was a lovely experience! The huge grassy area out the front, a bit of wildlife was perfect for my daughter, as well as free range of the castle we didn't have to be restricted to staying in our room. The staff were so accommodating & friendly they kept the bar/restaurant open specially for us after late after the show which was awesome!

We spent one night at Fernie Castle and our only regret is that we could not have stayed longer. We arrived in the afternoon and our host was extremely gracious and helpful -- from suggestions for a scenic drive and spot for dinner, to pouring the perfect night cap in the 'dungeon' bar. The room was furnished beautifully with antiques, and the beautiful gardens and grounds were ours to explore. Breakfast the next morning in the grand dining room -- gilded ceilings, heirloom oil paintings and fresh flowers -- was the perfect end to the visit.

Room Tip: A room on the top floor, by legend, is haunted by a lady in green. Our room was on the second floo...
