After driving past the castle entrance for nigh on 20 years, I finally managed a visit to Ballindalloch Castle this morning. I took DH and DS with me and we just bought tickets for the grounds. As it happened, there is a fantastic play area for the little ones so DS was more than happy.
The castle is famous for its Lady Laird, the first one in several hundred years of history – Clare Macpherson-Grant Russell. The castle grounds are stunning and they even have a flock of llamas, one of whom gave birth on Sunday – a Llamalet???
