Aberdour Castle

Fife Coastal Route

Visit Aberdour Castle, thought to be the oldest standing castle in Scotland. The hall-house is the oldest part (it was built in the 1100s) and you can see where the building has been extended with later additions. Though the west side of the castle is ruined, the east range is remarkably intact, boasting features such as a painted ceiling from the 1600s.

Enjoy a wander in the tranquil gardens and look out for the impressive beehive shaped dovecot. From the castle it’s just a short stroll to St Fillan’s Church (also built in the 1100s) as well as the beautiful Aberdour Silver Sands beach. Aberdour Golf Club is close by if you fancy a game too.
