Castle Fraser

Castle Fraser
AB51 7LD

A visit to Castle Fraser is a great day out for the whole family. It is one of the finest castles in Aberdeenshire and is the largest, most elaborate Scottish castle built on the traditional 'Z' plan.

The striking simplicity of its Great Hall and the stout walls of this beautiful building evoke the atmosphere of past centuries. In the Hall you can see a traditional 'Laird's lug', learn some of the castle's intriguing history and listen to some of its ghost stories!

The castle contains many Fraser family portraits, including one by Raeburn and fine 19th century carpets, curtains and bed hangings.

The castle stands in 350 acres of beautiful farmland. Follow woodland trails, take a leisurely walk through the old walled garden, entertain the children in the adventure playground or simply enjoy a picnic in perfectly peaceful surroundings.

Round off your visit by relaxing in the tearoom, enjoying home-baked cakes in the ambience of the 19th-century castle kitchen. The new shop, situated in one of the 17th-century 'laigh biggins', boasts a vaulted ceiling and offers an exclusive range of quality gifts and souvenirs.
