This is our fourth stay at Castle Stuart & it is extra-special to us as it's where we were married 9 years ago. And, as ever, it didn't disappoint! Caroline & Grace went out of their way to make our stay a magical experience. It really is a home from home, with all those special little touches that set it apart from other places.
After two stays in the haunted Murray Room over the years, this time we chose the McLachlan Room, or Battlement Suite, at the top of the west tower, the room we had stayed in on our very first trip to Castle Stuart back in 2002. As ever, chocolates and goodies were left on the bed & all around the castle for us to help ourselves to, & tea, coffee & cakes were waiting for us in the drawing room. Although we missed Mrs M & her amazing porridge as she was on holiday, dinner & breakfast were elaborate affairs & we felt very spoilt. I would certainly recommend staying for dinner if you can.
If you're looking for enormous flat screen TVs & all the mod cons then this isn't the place for you. However, if you're searching for a place where you can get away from it all in the most wonderful peaceful surroundings where you feel really pampered, then this should suit you down to the ground! There is no denying that it is expensive, but each time we stay it's worth every penny.
Thank you Caroline (& this time Grace too) for another memorable stay - the perfect end to our holiday in Scotland!
