The West Wing of Fordyce Castle is the first 2 floors of the West Wing of Fordyce Castle. Fordyce Castle is situated in the centre of the medieval village of Fordyce. Fordyce Castle dates back to 1592. Originally it was thought that the West Wing was a 17th century addition to Fordyce Castle however during renovation work it was discovered that there were shot holes and an earlier roof line which showed that the first two floors were in fact of the same date as the rest of the Castle.
