Visitors to Aberdour Castle, one of the oldest masonry castles in Scotland, took a step back in time at the weekend.

The castle, along with Historic Environment Scotland, hosted ‘Keys to the Castle,’ a 14th century re-enactment weekend, bringing to life a unique part of the historical landmark’s past when King Robert the Bruce gifted the castle to his nephew.
