We have been here many times, to see plays, hear music and now to attend the wonderful annual Flock Craft Fair. So many interesting stalls with a high standard of craft. Lovely space and a great cafe for lunch afterwards.

The Barn is definitely worth a visit if you're in Banchory or on your way to Balmoral. Literally everyone is home made - even the yoghurt and the beer! The food tastes incredible - the main means and the amazing cakes!

I have never seen dogs inside but there is a lovely outdoor area with tables and chairs and blankets to cover up and keep cosy. I even sat out here in December and ate a meal. The view is stunning.
