... the little café there, all the tables & stools were made out of old kegs, it was really good.
Then we went on to Knockando to have a look at the restored woollen mill, it has been fully restored at a cost of 3 1/2 million pounds. Unfortunately it wasn't working when we were there, it is all run by volunteers now and the chap wasn't there.
Then we went back home as we had to get ready for our big train trip back to ...
... We listened to music, took pictures, looked at some local crafts, and enjoyed a wonderful evening. After getting an ok burger we headed to a nearby pub that we heard music being played in.

Spent the day in the nearby town of Elgin with its medieval street names, ruined cathedral and Aldi supermarket. The museum was very well presented and worth a couple of hours. The highlight of the day was the visit to the local distillery, Glen Moray, with samples of their 8 year old and 16 year old single malts.
... manage a staff of 30 gardeners. Although the garden is still waiting on restoration a lot of the original plants are still here. The last owner did a lot of restoration work to the castle and opened parts to the public but passed away in 1997.

Friendly enough, clean, and simple. No frills (but more cable channels than I expected). Showed up at the last minute around 8:30 and was able to get a room (Tuesday night). Restaurant closes by 9pm, and only food around is the Co-operative Food next door, but only until 10pm. Breakfast was hardy and delicious. No complaints.
