Fyvie Castle has been a National Trust for Scotland property since 1984, when the Laird of Fyvie, Sir Andrew Forbes-Leith, sold the property to them, but its history goes back many centuries.
I wanted to know more, and I eventually found a book published in 1928 and now long out of print. It was a very difficult read – the author, who had obviously spent an enormous amount of time on research, delving into dusty documents and diverse history books, kept going off at a tangent and although the writings were very interesting, I found that I kept losing track of the main subject – what each Laird had been up to and when. So I decided to re-write the book for myself, editing out parts so the book flowed smoothly, and updating some of the language used in the 1928 version.
The result is 'Fyvie Castle, Its Lairds and their Times'.
After that book was published I turned my attention to the stories of the hauntings - both the historical stories and reports from today, taken from people who live and work there.
'Fyvie Castle Unexplained' is the result of that, and is an absolutely fascinating subject. Go to the web page for this book to see full details.
