Fyvie Castle, Garden & Estate

Fyvie Castle and tearoom are open April through October. The grounds and lochside are open daily, all year.

The charm of Fyvie ranges from its 13th-century origins to its stunning Edwardian interiors. 

The 18th-century walled garden has recently been redeveloped as a garden of Scottish fruits and vegetables.

You can also enjoy the ice house, bird hide and restored earth closet.

Browse the castle shop for a variety of gifts.

Visit the tearoom located close to the historic castle kitchens for a light lunch or cake and a refreshing cup of tea or coffee. 

Baby changing facilities are available, and pushchairs can be stored in the Front Hall.

Fyvie’s 18th-century owners created Fyvie Loch in what was marshland protecting the castle. This picturesque landscape feature now covers a large part of the estate’s 49 hectares and supports large numbers of wildfowl.

Swans, coots, mallards, and moorhens are joined in the winter by greylag geese, tufted ducks and goldeneyes. Ospreys occasionally visit to fish in the loch.

Follow the Lochside Walk to explore this rich habitat.

Disabled parking is available in front of the castle.

Only the Front Hall is accessible to wheelchairs; in the castle there are steps to various rooms.
