Whatever your view of the Royal Family, Balmoral is a great day out. The audio guide is unintentionally quite funny. It mentions the Royal’s main sporting interests as deer stalking, grouse shooting and fishing – all sports that involve killing things. What’s wrong with football, darts or snooker? Also some of the locals do the commentary and do they sound bored or what! The photographs used for the Royal Christmas cards over the years range from very tasteful to outright tacky!balmoral castle

It was useful seeing the layout of the place, especially the location of the tearoom, as I was walking through here tomorrow.

Ishbel headed back home after a meal in Braemar.
