Fyvie Castle, Fyvie, Turriff, AB53 8PQ
Imposing Fyvie Castle is an excellent example of grand Scottish Baronial architecture and is filled with antiquities, armour and oil paintings.
Art lovers will appreciate Fyvie’s rich portrait collection, including works by Batoni, Romney, Gainsborough, Opie, Lawrence and Hoppner. It also boasts one of the largest private collections of Raeburns in the world.
Five successive families owned the castle and tradition claims that each created one of the five towers: Preston, Meldrum, Seton, Gordon and Forbes-Leith. Sadly, this is not the case, but William the Lion was at Fyvie around 1214 and later Robert the Bruce and Charles I were visitors.
Fyvie Castle's tearoom is located in the Victorian Kitchens of the house. We serve a range of soup and sandwiches, cakes and homebakes, and serve both hot and cold beverages. There is seating outdoor also for those sunny days!

There are 8 bedrooms of a mix of twin, double and king rooms. There are four bathrooms. Guests enjoy a private entrance to the apartment. Complimentary tours of the castle can also be arranged.
