Guest Lounge.

The Coffee Lounge closes at 5pm but the comfortable ground floor guest lounge, situated in the former side chapel, remains open for resident guests use. A wide range of beers, wines and spirits, including a selection of malt whiskies, is available.

Blending the old with the new, this lounge provides a stylish and interesting space in which to relax with a drink, a good book, plan your next castle visit or recover from a day’s hill walking.

An external terrace area is also available for guests to make the most of the fine Scottish weather – umbrellas can be found in the porch!!!

Residents planning a day in the depths of GlenTannar or a hike up Lochnagar may need to take a packed lunch. We can easily make up a packed lunch from the items available in the coffee lounge. We will be happy to discuss your personal requirements.
