Aberdour Castle is among the oldest standing masonry castles in Scotland; in fact, it may be the oldest. It served as a residence for three noble families over a period of 500 years

Aberdour was originally built as a fortified residence in the 1100s, making it one of the oldest stone castles in the country. The fine painted ceiling dates from the 1600s.
