This Tuesday’s travel returns to Scotland to continue our journey in 2012. Our previous stopping point was Glen Garioch Distillery.
Fyvie Castle was the next point of interest and was not far from the cottage we were staying in at Stonefolds Farm. When we visited the castle it was closed. We were not to be deterred and did a wander of the grounds instead.
We did return to the castle at a later date and were able to view inside where there is a magnificent art collection.
The castle has had some extensive work done on one of the turrets and you can see the metal bands that have been placed to keep the stonework together. If you fancy staying in one of the turrets apparently you can as accommodation is available through the National Trust of Scotland.
