Fyvie Castle might date back to the 13th century, but its Baronial look is a good bit more recent. Its masterful main towers and elegant interior plaster work are turn-of-the-17th-century features. The castle’s magnificent sweeping staircase is another particular highlight; as is its vegetable garden.
But the key headline grabber are the castle’s hauntings, which have made it the subject of a British TV documentary (see it here). Spooky features include a woman’s skeleton in a secret chamber; a blood stain that won’t be washed away and two ghosts.
If you’ve a fear of the paranormal then good luck!
