         How our Murder mystery weekend breaks work.................

FRIDAY......Check in from Blow away the cobwebs with a walk to Loch Achilty or to the Falls of Rogie. Or if you're not feeling energetic unwind in front of the fire for the afternoon.    If you choose to book dinner on Friday night, it is available from 7.00 - 8.00pm.   Dinner is 3 courses with a choice of starters, main courses and sweets.  Relax in the bar or lounge with a malt  before a peaceful nights sleep.

SATURDAY........starts with a full Scottish breakfast and then the day is yours to do with as you wish.  If you want to add some optional activities to your murder mystery weekend we can recommend some excellent golf, fishing and horse riding nearby or enjoy a scenic drive to the west coast. Visit Inverness or do a spot of sight-seeing, Dunrobin Castle, Cawdor Castle, Fort George all highly recommended , or see if you can solve the biggest mystery of all with a cruise on Loch Ness.

  12 per person.

Take part in our The Legend of the Brahan Seer Trail car treasure hunt with suitable prize for the winning car! 

The MURDER MYSTERY commences 7.00 p.m. in the Rogie bar. Why not start the evening with a "Bloody Mary" to really get you in the mood!  

 The murder mystery dinner menu reflects the event....choice of sleuthing starters, murderous main courses  and "to die for" sweets and coffee....please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements eg, vegetarian, in advance.   Goode for a Giggle weave their intrigue throughout the evening, watch out for clues along the way, and of course lots of red herrings to trip you may be asked to step in/take part/murder/be murdered/fire a shot in the dark - but you are guaranteed to have a lot of fun with your fellow sleuths!

When the murder/s have been solved and dinner is at a close there are  PRIZES for the best fancy dress effort and of course for the winning "Sherlock Holmes" team.

SUNDAY Scottish breakfast as before. Check out by

"Dress up" in the period etc.

not compulsory, but adds for a more colourful and entertaining evening !
