Castle Fraser, Scotland

Castle Fraser is the most elaborate Z-plan castle in Scotland and one of the grandest 'Castles of Mar'. It is located near Kemnay in the Aberdeenshire region of Scotland. The castle stands in over 300 acres (1.2 km2) of landscaped grounds, woodland and farmland which includes a walled kitchen garden of the 19th century.

It is an atmospheric baronial castle dating back to the 15th century and was the ancestral home of the Fraser family. It retains the atmosphere of the family home with portraits, furniture and mementoes. Highlights include the Great Hall dating back to the 1400s, an original library with family books, and a grand worked room with 18th-century embroideries.
