There was a Christmas Fayre on when I last visited Fyvie Castle. It was all rather unexpected and enchanting.
Over on Twitter, Andrew Spratt, medieval re-enactor and ‘Man at Arms,’ worked his magic on an image I took on the day. It shows how the castle would have looked in the 15th century.
The Ghost of Fyvie Castle
In the foyer, there was a pile of books. The Green Lady by Sue Lawrence is about the mistreated ghost of Fyvie Castle and is set in the past and the present. The Green Lady is said to have been starved to death by her husband. I made everybody read my endorsement on the back.
Up the stairs we go…
The castle was full of local artists and crafts people selling their wares. I bought some Christmas cards and – surprise, surprise – some chocolate.
The Music Room
Pianist Ronan Malster provided beautiful music. Hear it below:
Come on, Ailish!
As I left the castle, someone called, “Ailish! Come on, Ailish!”
I looked round, but it wasn’t me that was being called. There was a small child named Ailish, and she was being encouraged to hurry up by her parents. I felt encouraged too and hurried off to walk round the icy loch.
