Attraction in Laurencekirk
Fasque is a vast Georgian mansion, purchased by Sir John Gladstone in 1826. An exquisite, much smaller house was demolished at the start of the century to make way for this enormous summer palace, and the new house was extravagant in every detail. Fasque’s most significant architectural feature is its extraordinary double cantilevered stair case, said to be the largest of its kind in the world. But there are many other striking features; an important library, an enormous State drawing room, an entrance hall that can seat a hundred for dinner.
Today the main activity in the house is the hosting of weddings, but other commercial activities include dinners, meetings, photo shoots and product launches. Fasque is not open to the general public, but guided tours, which can include dinner or lunch, can be arranged for twelve or more visitors.
We warmly welcome those who wish to enjoy the beautiful countryside of Glen Dye or Fasque, whether to walk, bike, camp, run…..or whatever! We urge all of those enjoying access to adhere to The Scottish Outdoor Access Code
