Fyvie is about as fairytale as castles come. Its huge handsome structure is a prime example of Scottish baronial architecture. Inside, elaborate wood panelling, suits of armour and tapestries symbolise the wealth and power of the castle’s succession of owners.
Over 800 years of history are built into Fyvie’s walls. King William the Lion stayed on the site in 1214 when touring Scotland. Over time, each generation of new owners has expanded the castle to its monumental size. Fyvie’s towers are all named after one of the five families who succeeded the estate in turn.
The castle also contains an outstanding collection of art, including works by Raeburn and Gainsborough. Where medieval stone cedes seamlessly into Edwardian opulence, a visit to Fyvie is unforgettable.
Fyvie Castle is just off the A947, 26 miles north of Aberdeen and 21 miles from Aberdeen International Airport (Dyce).
