Fyvie Castle, Turriff, Aberdeenshire, AB53 8JS

    Dating back to the 13th century, Fyvie Castle is found about a mile north of the village of Fyvie in Aberdeenshire.

    This stunning castle was once a royal stronghold, one of a chain of fortresses throughout medieval Scotland. The oldest part of the castle still stands today, dating from the 13th century, which houses a great wheel staircase, the finest in Scotland.

    Contemporary panelling and plaster ceilings survive in the 17th century Morning Room and the opulence of the Edwardian era is reflected in the interiors created by the first Lord Leith of Fyvie.

    A rich portrait collection is also found in the castle including works by Batoni, Raeburn and Hoppner; and there is a fine collection of arms and armour and 17th century tapestries.

    The grounds and loch were designed as landscaped parkland in the early 19th century. The 18th century walled garden has been redeveloped as a celebration of Scottish fruits and vegetables. Visitors can also enjoy the restored racquets court, ice house, bird hide, restored earth closet and beautiful loch side walks.
