Visit Fordyce and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Fordyce, Aberdeenshire. Most pleasingly situated on the side roads to the South of the main road from Portsoy to Cullen, Fordyce was a burgh of barony under the Earl of Seafield, and received its first charter in 1499, another in 1592. The village has gathered itself round a castle built in 1592, with later additions with fine corbelling and dormer windows. Fordyce Academy was a well-known secondary school with a boarding house, founded by a bequest left by an Indian magnate. It is now a primary school.
About 1½ miles. North West stands the mansion house of Birkenbog, with a fine walled garden. It was the birthplace of Thomas Nicholson (1645— 1718), the first Catholic Vicar-Apostolic of Scotland, after the Reformation and before the l9th century restoration of Scottish sees.
