Wonderful, we were a party of eleven celebrating our friends 90th birthday. We couldn't have had a better tea anywhere...and to cap it all, Joan came out with a birthday cake made especially for the occasion. Thank you so much for the lovely time.

Another lovely visit last week to Dalgaty Castle. This castle is a gem. It is owned by a private trust and unlike some of the national owned castles is open throughout the winter months and has very knowledgeable guides. The tearoom in itself is worth...More

Yes - I would think so. When we visited, there was a group of 8 women arrived. They were expected and a table had been set out for them with a special afternoon tea selection.
