Turns out you don’t need a crown to spend the night in the company of royalty. Prince Charles has opened up his very own Scottish bed and breakfast.
The Prince officially opened Granary Lodge in May, which is located within the grounds of the Castle of Mey. The castle is the former holiday home of the Queen Mother, which she renovated and saved from ruin.
Inside the lodge, there are 10 individually styled bedrooms, some with full suites, others with sweeping views over the Pentland Firth to Orkney. The lodge was renovated by the Prince’s Trust and the rooms are furnished with floral upholstered headboards and classically-style homewares - all with a very royal feel and flair!
A freshly-cooked breakfast using “quality, locally-source ingredients” is provided in the morning.
The website invites guess to “round off your day off with a wee dram from the bar while relaxing in our drawing room, enjoying the sunset.”
