Built in 1592 by Thomas Menzies of Durn, the castle is not the oldest building in the village. You come across it simply on the bend in the road through the village.
It is typical 17th C design, with later additions. The castle is on three storeys
The castle was once also a school, but is now mainly a private residence.

Directions: In Fordyce village, just off the A98 Banff to Cullen road in Aberdeenshire
