The same applies at Cringletie, with new wines and new menus to stimulating the taste buds, along with the same excellence in comfort, relaxation and hospitality.

Valentine's Day is almost upon us again; another day in the year where the shops are filled with merchandise that is hugely more expensive than any other time of the year!

Now, don't get me wrong, I love a good bunch of flowers from my husband on Valentine's Day, but to me, I would feel that more thought had gone into a romantic gift if it were spontaneous and different. 

If a Valentine's stay isn't on the cards for you this year, why not be spontaneous and buy a Celtic Castles Gift Voucher? Monetary Gift Vouchers or our Bed and Breakfast Gift Vouchers can be bought, not only to cover a castle stay but maybe to cover the cost of an afternoon tea for two.

For many years I have wanted to visit Rosslyn Chapel and, in December 2014, during a castle tour, I was lucky to be able to fit a visit into the itinerary.

I have to say I was not disappointed; I only wish we could have stayed longer! 

I always feel a sense of calm when I walk into a church or cathedral, an instant relaxation of my mind. Whether this is created from the atmosphere of the churches or a religious calming of self-created meditation, I am not sure, but again as I entered the chapel, the atmosphere allowed me instantly to settle comfortably into peace and tranquillity.

An Englishman's home is his castle....

Well, now a Scotsman's castle can be YOUR home!

Discover a land where majestic landscapes roll down to the sea as this part of Scotland touches the whole of the North East of the country's coastline with beaches and rocky outcrops from Inverbervie, South of Aberdeen (the granite city) all the way round to Buckie, near Fochabers and Elgin.

This is a part of Scotland adored by the Royal Family; they have Balmoral Castle at Deeside in the south of Aberdeenshire and, with this amount of coastline, it is a region with a rich maritime heritage to explore.
