Fyvie Castle

With a history tracing back over 800 years, Fyvie Castle has been described as one of the finest of all castles in Scotland. Now owned by the National Trust for Scotland, this historic castle is open to the general public during the summer months.

Five families are said to have each contributed to the castle and its construction, Preston, Meldrum, Seton, Gordon and Leith. Local legend has it that each built one of the five impressive castle towers.

Art lovers will appreciate Fyvie’s rich portrait collection, including works by Batoni, Romney, Gainsborough, Opie, Lawrence and Hoppner. The castle also boasts one of the largest private collections of Raeburns in the world. 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.

Fyvie’s main grounds and lochside were landscaped in the early 19th century. Fyvie Castles 18th-century walled garden has been developed as a garden of Scottish fruits and vegetables and the gardens and other parkland areas are open to the public all year.
