Where is Castle Fraser?

Just a 35 minute drive outside of Aberdeen, Castle Fraser is a great day trip if you're looking to escape the city for a bit and soak up some history.

Admire fascinating family treasures and portraits by famous artists in the castle including a Raeburn! Venture up to the top of the round tower for incredible views also let young imaginations run free in the Woodland Secrets play area. In the mainly coniferous woodland you can hear, and sometimes see, a variety of birds, including treecreepers, long-tailed tits and coal tits. The ponds are a valuable habitat for many creatures, providing a place for frogs and newts to breed, birds to drink and insect larvae to grow. Swallows, swifts and martins hunt the insects flying over the water, and in the evenings Daubenton’s bats skim the surface for flies and midges.
