    “The Castle was an amazing place to stay.”

    It is owned by the National Trust for Scotland and was like living in a stately home. Couldn't fault it

The property

Rothienorman 4.9 miles.

One of the National Trust for Scotland's most prestigious holiday properties, The Preston Tower Apartment offers a truly exceptional stay at any time of the year.

Stretching across Fyvie Castle's Preston and Seton Towers, providing stunning accommodation for sixteen guests, it is the ultimate choice for a memorable escape to Scotland.

Discover four enchanting floors of winding nooks and mezzanines, a spiral staircase and even a bedroom within one of the traditional turrets, a truly magical stay in Fyvie, Aberdeenshire.

Spend quality time with your loved ones within these historic walls, where medieval stone cedes seamlessly into Edwardian opulence.

Celebrate a special occasion in the grandiose second floor dining room, complete with traditional Scottish tartan carpet, or delight in a catch-up within the spacious drawing room, with a TV in here too for an evening of entertainment.

The well-stocked kitchen is also on the second floor, and has everything you need to rustle up feasts for the group, with the cellar being home to a freezer too.

Find a peaceful moment within the snug, which can also be used as a study where you can delve into a good book.

The bathroom on the first floor boasts a beautifully classic roll top bath, perfect for a hot relaxing soak, while you will discover three shower rooms in total, two on the third floor and one on the fourth floor, offering plenty of space for guests to prepare for their day in style.

The bedrooms are made up of a king-size, three doubles and four twins, spread across all four floors making the most of the lavish space and providing each guest with an elegant place to rest their heads, boasting antique furnishings throughout each unique sleeping spot.

Explore the stunning redeveloped gardens of Fyvie Castle, now home to Scottish fruits and vegetables, with impressive lawned areas to roam, making a pleasant picnic spot in the summer.

This splendorous castle is a prime example of Scottish Baronial architecture; with ghosts, legends and folklore lurking within the walls, you can take a complimentary tour during your stay and see the elaborate wood panelling, suits of armour and fine tapestries, all symbolising the wealth of its past owners.

The village of Fyvie is home to a shop where you can pick up any essentials, along with a lovely tearoom, great for an afternoon treat, while the nearby village of Rothienorman has a welcoming pub and a shop.

Another National Trust for Scotland gem, Pitmedden Garden & Museum of Farming Life, comprises five miles of weaving geometric boxwood hedging, fountains and orchards; a truly wonderful day outdoors.

The 18th century mansion of Haddo House is close by too, while there is excitement to discover at Lochter Activity Centre, where you can partake in trout fishing, clay pigeon shooting, highland games and even raft building.

Choose the opulence of The Preston Tower Apartment for an unrivalled stay in Scotland.
