Our new Viking domes have been named after the stars in the sky and will have stunning views out across the estate and golf course.  Named after the six-star system, Castor will hold up to 6 guests and the larger dome, named Aurora will hold up to 12.  Diners will access the domes from a private door in the hotel, following a lit stone path onto the lawns.  

Carefully thought out, the atmospheric domes have wooden flooring and tailor-made furniture decked out with beautiful lantern lamps.  A Bluetooth music system is installed in each where you can wire in your own surround sound music choices.   Available to hire for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner, the natural environment will create a real wow factor with 360 degree views to the original manor house, the highland cows, golf course and the sky above.
