Thank you for your kind review, all of our baking is homemade and I must say the lemon drizzle is very popular. We hope to see you again. Thank you.

Hi, Doune Castle is near Stirling, probably about a 3 or 4 hour drive from us. It really depends on what you want to do while you are there how long you will need. Thanks Rick Schabeck
