Finding Stuart Castle off the beaten path and down a tree lined drive just added to the ambiance of our wonderful stay! As soon as we arrived we were met outside by our car and given a tour of the whole castle. We even found many of the hidden doorways and spooky alcoves! Our room (the MacDonald) was cozy warm with the fireplace going, wine and chocolates waiting for us that evening. In the morning we were lost and kitchen staff showed us to the Dining hall. Gorgeous, I felt like royalty! Granny McNab (the cook at Castle Stuart, I didn't get her name but I was reading Dianne Gabaldon "The Outlander" at the time and the description of Granny McNab in the book was this lady!) she made us a wonderful breakfast with lots of yummy things and she spoke with us about Scotland and answered all of our questions. We took a stroll through the gardens and many pictures too. This was definitely our favorite place we stayed the whole trip!!
