In 1592 Alexander Seaton bocht Fyvie Castle, an in 1601 he murdered his ain wife because he'd faan in love wi somebody else. He remairried his new love an on his wedding nicht there were noises ootside.
A strang smell o roses wis in the air. In the mornin, the name o his deed wife wis carved on the windowsill 50 feet fae the grun!

The day the ghost o Lillias Drummond still waks up the 63 steps o Fyvie Castle an the smell o roses lives again.
