An Invitation from Banffshire Field Club

E-mail sent by Banff Castle, Friday, 7th June 2013 @ 9:53am

Banffshire Field Club would like to extend an invite to join them on a Field trip on Friday 14th June.

This will be a coach outing, starting, as usual for the Field Club, from the car-park of the school at Keith, at 12.30. We have a tour booked at 1.15pm of the recently re-opened Glenglassaugh Distillery, at Sandend. Those who have done the tour say it is very well devised. Afterwards we shall have the pretty run up the Deveron around Rothiemay, and stop at Marnoch Old Kirk, which played a key part in the Disruption in 1843. We shall also tell you more about a ruined castle, but we shall not climb over it, and then go for high tea to the highly recommended Forbes Arms Hotel at Rothiemay.

 
The price, including the coach, the tour of the distillery, and the high tea, will be £25. Contact Alistair Mason ASAP – 01261 812941 or alistair.mason@btinternet.com or even 14 Old Castlegate, Banff AB45 1DE

New Room Hire Tariffs at Banff Castle from June 2013

E-mail sent by Banff Castle, Friday, 12th April 2013 @ 11:29am

Dear All,

Firstly, thank you for supporting Banff Castle.

After managing to keep our room hire tariff at a very modest rate since January 2010, we have now revised the cost of room hire, etc as of June 2013 due to increasing utility costs

As the increase is minimal, we hope that you will continue to support us and make use of our facilities as much as before!

Thanks

All at Banff Castle
