Overview
More
The charm of Fyvie ranges from its 13th-century origins to its stunning Edwardian interiors. The castle is home to a superb collection of arms, armour and paintings, including works by Raeburn and Gainsborough. Stroll around the picturesque loch, or visit the restored 1903 racquet court and bowling alley. Ghosts, legends and folklore are all woven into the tapestry of Fyvie Castle's 800-year history. Tradition claims that the castle's five successive families - Preston, Meldrum, Seton, Gordon and Forbes-Leith - each added a tower to this magnificent Scottish Baronial fortress. You can see their influences today among the medieval stones and the lavish Edwardian interiors, and imagine what castle life must have been like for the families and their royal guests - among them Robert the Bruce, Edward I and Charles I.

I was disappointed with my visit but only because I was expecting an old style castle. none of the original was left except the outside, it had been done out by the victorians again they spoiled it for me.

This is a National Trust for Scotland property and, as usual, the staff (and volunteers) on hand were helpful and knowledgeable about many different aspects of the castle's history and contents. The grounds are well worth visiting too.
