Here are Lois from Buchlyvie and Joanne from Milngave, two of our very many visitors enjoying seeing The Dulaig garden today for the first time as part of the Abernethy Open Gardens day.

What will happen next? Watch this space or, even better, come to The Dulaig and see for y...
It has been our absolute pleasure to share our home, garden, love of Scotland and of food, with guests over the past 14 years. The experience of running our B&B exceeded our wildest dreams however we - Carol, Gordon (& The Cake Fairy) - have hung up our aprons for the last time.

Warmest Wishes to All, Carol, Gordon..and The Cake Fairy x
