Built by the Douglas family in the 14th century, this delightful castle has a walled garden and dovecote, and the gallery on the first floor gives an insight of how it was furnished at the time.

The 12th-century fortified residence of Aberdour was extended in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. It boasts a delightful walled garden and terraces with beehive-shaped dovecot. The castle also features a fine painted ceiling. Café open during the summer and weekends throughout the winter.
