[Aberdour Castle]

Scotland is of course particularly well endowed with castles, but only one can be Scotland's oldest still standing. And perhaps it's Aberdour Castle: the central tower house dates all the way back to a the 1100s, though the following centuries saw a series of major expansions and adaptations carried out, mostly by the Earls of Morton. Historic Environment Scotland allow access to the castle, beehive doocot, orchard, terraces and walled garden. Inside the latter lies St Fillan's Church, its history intertwined with the castle's and still used as a parish church. Lots to see here then - and much more than the photos we took on a dull April day suggest.
