With more castles per acre anywhere else in the UK it’s no surprise that Aberdeenshire is known as 'Scotland's Castle Country.'  Discover some of the best known and most breathtaking castles in Scotland...


Craigievar Castle

Nestled under an hour east of Aberdeen is one of Scotland's most iconic and adored castles, Craigievar. Step straight into a real life Disney scene with this pink, turreted fairytale castle which is believed to have inspired Walt Disney. Visitors can also explore the beautiful surrounding grounds and trails.

Dunnottar Castle

Venture south from Aberdeen to Stonehaven and you'll come across the dramatic ruins of Dunnottar Castle, a medieval fortress perched atop a rocky headland. Featured in Franco Zeffirelli's 1991 film Hamlet, it was famously battled over by Wallace and Cromwell. From the ramparts you may even spot puffins or dolphins if you’re in luck.

Crathes Castle

There’s so much to explore at this picture-perfect fairytale castle complete with turrets and gargoyles. Take in the setting amid spectacular grounds with beautiful woodland trails, lush gardens, ancient yew hedges and a treetop adventure park. And once inside, climb the spiral stairs and discover famous 16th Century painted ceilings, but watch out for the resident ghost, Green Lady.

Castle Fraser

Just west of Aberdeen, near Sauchen, lies Castle Fraser, one of the most magnificent castles of Mar. Discover an evocative Great Hall, elegant paintings and furniture, a tranquil enclosed garden, reaching woodland walkways and more at this monumental fortification. Rest up at the tearoom for a homebaked cake before finding the perfect souvenir to take home.

Tolquhon Castle

Half an hour outside of Aberdeen lies one of the Grampian’s most picturesque castles. This late 16th century ruinous courtyard fortification is home to one of Scotland's finest Jacobean 'Glorious Tombs', a large tower, outstanding stone carvings and more. Don’t forget to look for the secret hiding place where the family treasures were kept!

Drum Castle

Drum Castle is a grand Jacobean mansion house with an imposing 13th century tower, lavishly furnished rooms and beautiful paintings. The gounds are equally impressive with enchanting woodland trails and a stunning walled rose garden. Reach Drum Castle in around half an hour from Aberdeen.

Fyvie Castle

Under an hour north of Aberdeen discover an exceptional example of Scottish baronial architecture. From basic beginnings in the 13th century, Fyvie Castle evolved over the ages to its grand present day form. Marvel at the huge sweeping staircase and explore the treasures on display featuring an outstanding collection of arms, armour and artwork. Don’t forget to take a walk around the nearby loch.
