Aberdeenshire, Aberdeenshire, UK
Fyvie Castle was built in the 13th Century and is about a mile from the village of Fyvie in among the most beautiful countryside in the lowlands of Aberdeenshire. Historically, this castle is really interesting as it stands in Fyvie parish and has a great spot on the banks of the river Ythan. The atmosphere here is one of mystery as the woods cast their leafy spells and the waters of the lake add a brooding mystique to the area.
Once a royal stronghold, part of a chain of fortresses, this castle shows you treasures of structure, staircases, panelling, portraits, arms, armour, tapestries and the opulence of the time in the interiors. There is a well laid walled garden and extensive grounds with an ice house, racquets court, bird hide and of course the loch!
The Castle is a National Trust for Scotland property and is open for the public from April to October.
