Castle Fraser , Aberdeen Reviews

  • Fantastic place for family day out or just a walk with dog. Grounds are very well kept and clean.

  • Lovely castle, lovely grounds for kids and a couple of nice walks. Hard working event staff too

  • One of my favourite local places to visit with the family. Lovely garden and grounds for a nice walk. Even the cafe serves up good food.

  • Lovely place to go for a walk, unforunalty on the day we chose to go the house itself was closed so we were unable to go inside. Both trails take around 30-40 minutes to walk at a reasonable pace.

  • Closed out of season but still great to appreciate the castle and enjoy the decent walks within the grounds
