Home to a storybook-worthy castle, countless countryside walks and views you'll never tire of, as far as countryside villages go, Fyvie has a lot going for it.
The village itself has everything you could need on your doorstep - supermarket, health centre, primary school, church - and further amenities are catered for by neighouring towns such as Turriff, only 9 miles north of Fyvie.
Surrounded by the rolling countryside, yet only 25 miles from the city, locals fill their weekends with picturesque riverside walks along the River Ythan, rounds of golf at nearby courses, day trips to Aberdeen and exploring Fyvie Castle and its beautiful landscaped grounds.
The castle is a prominent National Trust property with an 800-year history and offering one of the finest examples of Scottish Baronial architecture. From a rich portrait collection to its glorious gardens, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
Sold on the idea of moving to the area? Here are four of our favourite properties located in and around Fyvie.
Seldom seen on Fyvie's market, if you're looking to buy a home in the village, this one should be a top contender.
Commanding a sizeable plot in the heart of the village, 'Lilybank Cottage' is a four-bedroom detached house with single garage and beautiful gardens.
Benefits include full double glazing, electric storage heating and a fantastic location within close proximity of the local school and bus stop.
Situated on the outskirts of Fyvie, 'Lindenlea' commands a large plot with fully enclosed gardens, driveway and double-length garage.
The four-bedroom home is spacious, detached and has been lovingly maintained by the current owners.
The interior is immaculate and neutrally decorated with a touch of county charm, allowing the new buyers to move in with minimum fuss.
Located in the quaint hamlet of Woodhead, only minutes from Fyvie, 'Kirkcroft' is perfect for families in search of peaceful, countryside living.
The accommodation is well presented and flexible, but it's the exterior that really caught our eye.
The large plot encloses a large loc-bloc driveway, double garage/workshop and - sure to make your children's eyes gleam with excitement - a fantastic play area complete with 'Back Yard Discovery' climbing frame.
Surrounded by mature gardens, awe-inspiring views and oozing charm and character, 'The Gables' looks straight out of a fairytale.
Formerly a school house, the detached home is incredibly unique and still retains many of its original features including pitch pine woodwork, high ceilings and decorative cornicing.
Outside you can find a walled garden, various outbuildings, patio area and the original playground which is now being used as a large driveway - another quirky feature to add to the list!
