As part of a stay in Moffat we decided to check out a local attraction.A simple phone call and booking gave directions to the castle, and we found the place very easily, then took the lengthy drive through the grounds to the imposing castle. After a general mooch around to the castle shop and tea room which serves a very nice earl grey we headed off for our pre booked landrover trip tour, the guide for the tour was the very knowlegable Brian and for the next 90 mins or so we were given a guided tour around the estate. He answered the questions that we asked of him, and were given an interesting selection of anecdotes. The scenery in the estate is spectacular, and there were regular stops to take photos.
On returning to the castle, we then joined the tour of the castle itself. Again the guide was very knowledgeable, and helped to keep the tour interesting and not dry. The one down side of the tour was that there were some members of the tour who didnt appear to want to listen to the guide, but make their own commentary, rather too loudly. The guide, Stewart, handled the situation very well.
On return to the entrance and shop, we browsed around the shop for momentos, and founf the lady very attentive and chatty.
Overall, a most pleasant visit, helped by staff who understood the concept of customer care
