This is a really lovely, fairytale-looking castle in terrific condition and with very helpful staff who enrich the experience. The gardens are lovely, with walks through the trees and a pretty walled garden.

The castle grounds were well kept and the castle is located in a nice area. The castle itself though doesn't have a lot to offer compared to similar castles around Scotland.

Beautiful setting. Lots of rooms open to view. Mostly in tower so there are a lot of stairs. Guides are very informative. Tea room was also nice but not very large so can get busy on popular days.

My husband and I are planning on visiting Castle Fraser May 19th. We are considering staying at a nearby B & B or hotel prior to visiting. Would you have any suggestions? My husband is a descendant from the Fraser Family and we have been looking forward to this day for many months. It's our first trip to Scotland. By any chance were the Fraser's golfers? Thank you.

Are there any tours or guides that you know of who leave from Aberdeen and come to the Castle? My husband and I are visiting Scotland this June, we will be in Aberdeen one night and wanted to find a way to get to the Castle as he is of Fraser heritage. If we were to rent a car in Aberdeen, how long would it take to get to you? Warmest Regards, Cindy
