  • "We stayed here over 3 nights when we got married at Fyvie Castle along with some of our family and friends."

    The Preston tower is lovely and very comfortable. Everyone commented on the wonderful atmosphere in the apartment. All of the bedrooms are finished to a high standard and there are loads of bathroom facilities dotted about throughout the tower. We would highly recommend the Preston tower to anyone, especially anyone getting married at the castle. 5 stars from us!

    Congratulations on your recent marriage and thank you for your positive feedback about Preston Tower Apartment. Property Owner
