This castle has been lived in until recently, so you see many, many decades of styles combined, truly interesting. It is beautiful, the gardens and the fishery as well. There are many lovely walking paths on the property as well.

Oh my gosh it looks very old from the outside and it gave the feel, to me, of something kind of secretive about it. We were warmly greeted by a lady at the front door who took great pleasure in telling us about Captain Hay...More

Yes - I would think so. When we visited, there was a group of 8 women arrived. They were expected and a table had been set out for them with a special afternoon tea selection.
