From the striking simplicity of the medieval Great Hall to the well-stocked library and Victorian bedrooms, a tour of the castle gives a sense of walking through history. Each laird stamped his personality on the family seat, from the various ways...more

We went to Castle Fraser knowing is was closed but still wanting to see it. Was a great little stop off not too far from Aberdeen. Would definitely recommend going on a day when they are open instead - but was still lovely seeing the...More
We had the most amazing tour at castle Fraser from this lovely resident guide ( I think her name was Janie). Yes, this is a beautiful castle but nothing makes you experience the original atmosphere and how life really was back then like a good...More
A great looking castle that has been developed and extended over the years so that it can be sufficiently large enough and comfortable to live in. Each room is displayed as if still in use by the latest occupant with information cards in all and...More
They wouldn’t let me use my pram for my toddler despite being 8 months pregnant and struggling to carry her. Staff were completely unsympathetic to this. Cafe had very few pregnancy-friendly options also. Beautiful site but unaccommodating to those in special circumstances.
We happened upon this castle by chance and got there right after they closed. Even though we couldn’t go inside the castle we were able to walk the grounds (and had them all to ourselves!) and take pictures. It is a cute castle!

Sadly dogs are not allowed. We gave ours a good walk and left them in the car ( obviously in the shade with the windows open and access to water. ) We then walked up to the castle, not sure if you can leave the car in the castle car park with the dogs inside, but I wouldn’t advise it anyway as no shade at all.
