Castle Fraser

Completed around 1636, Castle Fraser is one of the finest examples of a Scottish baronial tower house:

I was surprised to see an Oystercatcher so far inland (Castle Fraser is miles from the coast) but apparently it’s quite common.

    Beautiful post, Mark πŸ™‚

    The castle looks great and hard to imagine that it’s around 400 years old…

    Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    Wonderful images! It all reminds me of the TV show here called “Outlander” based on the book series by Diana Gabaldon. My favorite series ever and I love everything to do with medieval times!
