Castles of Scotland – Castle Fraser

Part four of the #Castlesofscotland series is #Castle Fraser.

Again, i got lost today, no fault of the satnav this time around, i did one turn too early and lost about 10mins of drive time…

Castle Fraser is located near #Kemnay which is in #Aberdeenshire. Initial construction started in 1575 by the 6th Lord of Fraser.

The castle was eventually given to the National Trust of #Scotland in 1976.

There is a 19th century walled garden, which i did not go into, plus sizeable castle ground

People book the castle for weddings, so, that’s a very romantic idea for those thinking of tieing the knots… 😉

As usual, most of the history info is available on wikipedia and the NTS website. Google is your friend.

Pictures next !
