This splendid ruin was once the luxurious Renaissance home and pleasure gardens of Regent Morton, at the time Scotland’s most powerful man.
Aberdour was originally built as a fortified residence in the 1100s, making it one of the oldest stone castles in the country. The fine painted ceiling dates from the 1600s.
