Lady Margaret Cottage Fordyce


Lady Margaret Cottage almost joins on to Fordyce Castle. It is so close that it is barely possible to stand in the gap between the Castle and the cottage! Lady Margaret Cottage is a holiday cottage offering a high standard of self catering accommodation in Banffshire. Lady Margaret Cottage was built in the 18th century, a couple of centuries after Fordyce Castle was built. Possibly there were buildings on the site prior to that. The holiday cottage is named after Lady Margaret Ogilvie of Durne who was the wife of Thomas Menzies for whom Fordyce Castle was built in 1592.
