Yet another castle/stately home full of family memorabilia that the NTS support. Didn't find anything interesting or unusual that I haven't seen in other stately homes. The odd connection to royalty here and there, but nothing special. Despite it's size (massive), you only get to visit 20% or so of the rooms. I want to see all of these places, the storerooms, servants quarters, the attic rooms, not just the guest bedrooms and the ballroom, full of paintings completely unconnected to the residents.
There was a wedding on which closed off the 2 main show rooms to visitors. Fyvie isn't cheap to visit, and as a member of NTS, didn't pay for the visit on the day, but would have been cheesed off, if charged the full amount. By all means, NTS should generate income, but don't inconvenience your paying visitors. This visit put me off visiting the several other similar attractions nearby.
