This is a fortified residence from the 13th century, which was extended in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.
It has splendid living areas and a terraced garden with bowling green. There is also a circular dovecot. The garden is really beautiful, and do take time to visit the church which is reached by walking through the garden. There is some lovely stained glass there.
The castle is closed Thursday afternoons and Fridays in winter.
5 miles east of the Forth Bridges in Aberdour on the A921
