Place Category: Activities

  • Castle Fraserwas built in 1575 and is one of the grandest of the Scottish baronial tower houses. The present castle contains an evocative Great Hall, fine furniture and many Fraser family portraits. There are fantastic views  of Bennachie from the top of the tower and you can walk through the beautiful gardens including the walled garden and woodland.

    The castle has it’s own secrets like the Laird’s Lug, a spy hole, a wooden leg and hidden trapdoors in the floor to secret staircases! Homemade treats and lunches are baked in the traditional victorian kitchen and there is a shop for souvenirs and dogs are welcome in the grounds.

    The children’s Woodland Secrets play area is an enchanting wooded area with a tepee, bamboo snake walk, giant xylophone and lots of other areas for children to hide and climb. The whole children’s area is built from natural materials and is therefore very environmentally friendly. There is access to this area by wheelchairs and pushchairs.

    The scented walled garden is accessible by wheelchairs or pushchairs. Printed room guides are available. The ground floor of the castle is accessible by wheelchairs and pushchairs, and although the rest of the castle is not accessible there is a detailed photo album in the reception area where visitors can look at the upper-floor rooms in more detail.

    There are disabled toilets in the courtyard near the shop and tearoom, which are accessible for both pushchairs and wheelchairs.

    Disabled parking is available near the front of the castle. The castle is open daily all year round.
