"Walking by the shores of Loch Ness and looking back at the castle as I listen to the rustle of leaves, Autumn is my favourite time to stay at this iconic fairy-tale castle. Sitting in the Red Room, beside the fire, enjoying afternoon tea looking down Loch Ness to Fort Augustus, what could be better? The best part of the day is to come...dinner; I wonder what Richard will be serving tonight? Whatever, I know it will be good!"
