4.5/5 TripAdvisor rating

“A group of us that meet together occasionally had a private dinner in the castle; what a tremendous evening! We started with sparkling wine and canapés, then enjoyed a tour of the museum by the Archivist. Afterwards, we were seated at a beautifully laid table for an excellent dinner– get together a party of friends and do it!”

“I am a military museum buff and I have to say that this is one of the best I have visited. The extra dynamic is the passion and professionalism of the people who work there; we were very fortunate to have Jim take us round for a guided tour. His knowledge and enthusiasm for his subject was infectious; he made a great day out fantastic! I can thoroughly recommend this.”

“We are regulars here; we love the place, the food, the people, the museum and shop. There is always a great welcome from friendly staff and the food is great; wholesome with a definite Scottish twist.”
