A true haven near the city for those who want to stay, work or unwind closer to nature.


Join us on Saturday 18th March 2017 for an evening of dinner and wine, when one of Scotland’s most prominent social historians, broadcaster and writer Billy Kay, will talk on Scottish wine history and the Auld Alliance.

As a producer and presenter, Billy Kay’s award-winning programmes on Scottish culture, history and language have graced the airwaves of BBC Radio Scotland, Radio Netherlands, CBC Canada, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 4, Channel 4 Television and BBC Television Scotland to name but a few.

Multi-linguist Billy is also the author of several seminal books such as ‘Scots: The Mither Tongue’, ‘The Scottish World’ and co-author of ‘Knee Deep in Claret’. He has published poetry and written short stories and plays for radio and the stage.

Join us for a 3 course dinner, where you will be piped in, greeted with a drink upon arrival then enjoy a wine tasting with each course.

A highly entertaining speaker, whose vast knowledge combined with his wit and gusto will have you transfixed, following his beautifully presented anecdotes about the Scot’s thirst for claret and fine wine over a period of 600 years.
