The 15th-century Castle Fraser in northern Scotland was once the seat of the Fraser clan. The castle's origins date back to the 1400s, and major upgrades and expansions took place between 1575 and 1636. Some of the original elements of the castle still remain, along with some renovations and additions from the 18th and 19th centuries. One of the most significant sections of the original castle is the Great Hall. The castle also has a library filled with family books and a grand Worked Room with 18th-century embroideries. Throughout the castle, visitors can admire family portraits, antique furniture, carpets, and mementos.
From Castle Fraser's round tower, visitors can enjoy panoramic views of the estate and the surrounding gardens. There are two marked trails through the mix of woodland and farmland as well as a pond and walled gardens with flowers, fruits and vegetables.
Castle Fraser is located 4 miles north of Dunecht and 16 miles west of Aberdeen.
