Ghosts, legends and folklore are all woven into the tapestry of Fyvie's 800-year-old history. But stories aside, we do know William the Lion was at Fyvie around 1214 and later Robert the Bruce and Charles I were among its royal guests.

Art lovers will appreciate the rich portrait collection, including one of the largest private collections of Raeburns in the world. There's an equally impressive collection of fine furniture, tapestries, arms and armour throughout.
Outside, the 18th-century walled garden has been redeveloped as a garden of Scottish fruits and vegetables.
Fyvie Loch is a picturesque landscape feature which 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.
