Aberdour Castle

This Friday’s visit with husband was Aberdour Castle. The castle was used in the last episode of series 1 – To Ransom a Man’s Soul.

We enjoyed walking round the castle discovering different parts. In a ruined part of the castle we found the kitchen with a big open fireplace which included a bread oven. The gardens are beautiful though I was surprised to find out they were only rediscovered in the 1970s.

The 12th century fortified residence of Aberdour was extended by the Douglases in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.

It boasts a delightful walled garden and terraces with beehive-shaped dovecot.
