Visited Craigievar Castle with my friend from London and 9 year old daughter yesterday. I have visited many castles and enjoyed their splendour and magic with the insights from the tour guides. But oh my. The tour guide, a relatively young chap, when not making rather derogatory comments about Scotland - oh well it is Scotland, sun doesn't shine in Scotland - eh it is a castle in SCOTLAND and slagging off his other tour guides!!. He was more interested in stopping us from touching the brass that he kept telling us he had polished that morning. His humour fell flat and put us off the tour. Really disengaging, patronising and spoilt a tour of a fabulous venue. At the end of our tour, heard a little of the next tour guides information and wish we had had her she was imparting far more relative information. Lots to learn from other castles and guides.
