Castle Fraser, Garden & Estate

Celebrate in style at one of Scotland’s grandest baronial castles
A view of Castle Fraser at dusk, with birds flying in to roost in the surrounding woodland. The castle peeps out from behind a large tree, the walls glowing in the evening sun. A red flag flies from the roof.

Set amid over 120 hectares of beautiful gardens and open woodland, Castle Fraser is an idyllic setting for fairytale weddings, corporate events and private parties.

Dating from 1575, there is the unmistakable influence of French châteaux on this spectacular stronghold, with its wonderful turrets, balustrades and gables.

Accessed by a beautiful stone spiral staircase, the Great Hall is the principal room used for celebrations within the castle. With its high barrel-vaulted ceiling, this bright and spacious room enjoys natural light from three large south-facing windows and accommodates up to 60 guests. For more intimate gatherings, the castle has a variety of options available.

Outside, the secluded walled garden offers a beautiful setting for outdoor activities and alfresco dining.

For larger receptions, corporate events and festivals, the castle’s extensive grounds offer endless opportunities for marquees and outdoor activities.
