Fyvie Castle is reputed to have been built by King William the Lion in the early 13th century. It was the site of an open-air court held by King Robert the Bruce and home to the future King Charles I as a child.
The village's school, with around 125 pupils, serves the surrounding rural area.
The song The Bonnie Lass o' Fyvie tells of a captain of dragoons who dies for the love of a Fyvie girl. Additionally, the song, Andrew Lammie, tells of the doomed love of a local miller's daughter, Annie, for Lord Fyvie's trumpeter. Both of these songs may have historical basis - the young woman's grave is said to be in Fyvie churchyard.
One of the prophecies of Thomas the Rhymer relates to Fyvie, predicting it will never flourish until a particular three stones are found (a prophecy obviously pre-dating the church with its three Pictish runestones).
It is thought that the name Fyvie is derived from Fia-chein 'Deer hill'.
