at Fyvie Castle

an Edwardian convenience at Fyvie Castle   in Aberdeenshire, about 260 miles north of Newcastle.

The earliest parts of Fyvie Castle date from the 13th century.  Following the Battle of Otterburn in 1390, it ceased to be a royal stronghold and  fell into the possession of five successive families - Preston, Meldrum, Seton, Gordon and Leith - each of whom added a new tower to the castle.
 The castle, like many in Scotland,  is reputed to be haunted.
