Fyvie Castle - Ghosts, legends and folklore are all woven into the tapestry of Fyvie’s 800-year history.

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 and CharlesI.
