Castle Fraser

Castle Fraser – with a core that dates possibly back to the 1450’s –  is one of Scotland’s largest tower houses with quite a few things inside to see including going up to the top of the round tower for incredible views of the estate.  Sadly, we got there too late for the last tour and were unable to go inside.  I really would’ve loved to have gone up in that tower.

When you drive up and park you still have a bit of a walk before the castle appears before you surrounded by trees.  It is rather impressive.

    A shame you got there too late. This looks like a very eclectic castle and the views from the top would have been awesome. I’m guessing they would have had tapestries as well, as Indiana Jones would have appreciated. 🙂
    The castle looks a little pink. Is that the light or was it the stone colour?

    • We spent a lot of time at the first two castles of the day (will show later) and stopped for lunch before we finally found this location. Did peek in the door to see very stately furniture and paintings. It’s the light from the back that made it warmer than it’s natural color.

  3. It is actually looking like a castle that I could live in.. it does not look too big with huge yard ❤

  4. It seems unfathomable to build something like that back in the 15th century. It’s beautiful.

    Wow neato!!! Not too big, not to small, just about right for a summer cottage!

    Another cool castle. It’s interesting to see it on the flats, and not built on a hill.

    Beautiful. Hard to imagine buildings that old, sometimes.
