Fyvie Castle

Fyvie Castle

The castle is proud to house one of the largest private collections of Raeburns in the world.  Any art lover will appreciate Fyvie's rich portrait collection, which includes works by Batoni, Romney, Gainsborough, Opie, Lawrence and Hoppner. There's an equally impressive collection of fine furniture, tapestries, arms and armour throughout the castle's vast chambers, and a great stone wheel-staircase - the finest of its kind in Scotland.

Woven into the tapestry of Fyvie Castle's 800-year history are ghosts, legends and folklore. 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. 
Enjoy a leisurely stroll around Fyvie's grounds and lochside, landscaped in the early 19th-century. The 18th-century walled garden has recently been redeveloped as a garden of Scottish fruits and vegetables, and this, along with the American Garden and other parkland areas, is open all year.

You can also enjoy the restored racquets court and bowling alley, as well as the ice house, bird hide and restored earth closet.
