Castle Fraser is set in beautiful parkland and tours of the building take around an hour. However, you may just want to view the castle from the outside and stroll around the garden and grounds.The castle is nestled in beautiful grounds and Scotland’s largest tower houses with a delightful round-tower design that affords breath-taking views. The castle has some secrets and treasures some of which will be revealed on the tour.
Many of the properties we visit are owned by The National Trust for Scotland whose members enjoy free entry. The National Trust grounds are well kept with good facilities and access.
Bennachie is a range of several summits and has different routes to the top, each requiring different levels of fitness and time. The easiest route should take around one to one and a half hours to to reach the summits where you will want to linger there to soak in the magnificent views. There may also be an opportunity to visit a stone circle, depending on time and weather.
