Fantastic afternoon on Sunday 8th September At Saplin Brae Family Fun Day. 3 Adults and 2 Children had a totally civilised afternoon. The hotels new owners had laid on Bouncy Castles with attendants at hand for the kids, face painting, fancy dress characters as well as a bird display, shooting practice… the list goes on. Also must mention the Michael Buble tribute and highland dancers. We managed to while away 3 full hours with 2 x 1 year old toddlers who were both stimulated & entertained from the moment they arrived. While having a light lunch in the hotel (Children well catered for) we took a look at the lunch and dinner menus and we were pleasantly surprised at the range on offer as well as the reasonable pricing. The new staff are friendly and welcoming and I have no doubt I will be back soon to sample the yummy Sunday roast or maybe a mid-week dinner – both sound fab to me! Good Luck SaplinBrae
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Originally built in 1756, Saplinbrae Hotel and Lodges showcases the best in relaxed dining and living, where the quality of service and commitment to consistency is excellent, but still personal and fun. All of our nine bedrooms have historic charm, which we have complemented with local art, antique prints and small touches of tweed from our local mill. They are a fitting counterpart to the spectacular views from your window of acres of uninterrupted rolling farmland. Our self-catering lodges can be found in the hotel grounds-firstly, our stone Shooting Lodge which features four double en-suite bedrooms and a spacious kitchen-living area, and then our two cozy chalets. The hotel dining room offers relaxed, everyday dining, with contemporary takes on traditional foods. Having a strong agricultural connection within our team, we deem the provenance to be of the highest importance. We are genuinely committed to sourcing locally, and always source from Buchan, Aberdeenshire and Scotland as far as possible-our fish comes from suppliers in Fraserburgh, Peterhead and Sandend, our beef from Foveran, much of our pork and lamb from our own family farms in Kininmonth and the Black Isle and our vegetables from Morag in Crimond. We serve lunch and dinner daily from 12.00pm and 6.00pm, and you can pop in past anytime for a slice of carrot cake and a coffee. We are located in North Aberdeenshire, and Saplinbrae is the perfect seat from which to enjoy a weekend away: great walks, around the Pitfour Estate and the Buchan and Formartine Line, can be found on our doorstep, as well as Aden Country Park and several local golf clubs only a few miles away. We have great links with local fly fishing and shooting clubs for those looking for a wee bit of adventure, and can recommend the perfect spot to enjoy a good book for those who prefer a slower pace. ... more less
