Lady Margaret Holiday Cottage
Lady Margaret Cottage sleeps 4 and is next door to the 16th century Fordyce Castle. Fordyce is one of the gems of North East Scotland. Based on a medieval town plan, Fordyce originally grew up around the 11th century Christian community founded by the Celtic saint Talarican. There is the remains of a healing well in the village and an almost forgotten altar stone on the nearby Fordyce Hill. In 1499 due to its increasing importance as a religious centre, Fordyce became a feudal barony and Bishop Elphinstone of Aberdeen became the first Baron of Fordyce. Within the centre of the village is the historic kirkyard and the remains of the kirk dating back to the 16th century. Next door to the historic kirk is Fordyce Castle which was built in 1592. Fordyce Castle is a very pretty fairy tale like castle standing in the centre of the village. Lady Margaret Cottage is named after Lady Margaret Ogilvie, the beautiful daughter of the Alexander Ogilvie of Durne who married Thomas Menzies of Kirkhill for whom Fordyce Castle was built.
