Aberdour Castle And Garden



Aberdour Castle






 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.

This splendid ruin was once the luxurious Renaissance home and pleasure gardens of Regent Morton, at the time Scotland’s most powerful man.

It was used in the filming of Outlander.
