This old hotel is well worth the stay. The room we had was large and overlooked the gardens.
It is within walking distance of the old castle and town.
It has a great old silver service dinning room....we loved it

... on to auction. It is also the highest distillery in Scotland, and because the temperatures remain cool, or cold, it helps create the delicate whisky they have made famous. The tour was very informative, and I feel I have some basic knowledge with which to use if I ever buy or order whisky.

In any case, I did end up embroiled in a rather turbulent affair with this very Sicilian, very bankrupt bar-owner, who managed the café with his sister; both earning for their mother who had run away from their disloyal, gambling father to ...
... It's been an ambition of mine since my intermediate school days to go to Banff. However I was thinking Banff Canada not Banff, Scotland! Well I guess that will have to do. We tried to find what we thought was the village of Meldrum, but found out later its a district not a specific place. So the GPS had us going up this rutted dirt track to the middle of nowhere. Fortunately there was no one around at the barns we ended up almost inside of, so ...
