I was quite sure it will be an amazing visit, that I will be able to see great interiors and interesting architecture. But there is nothing like that, only the woodwork is worth mentioning.

We had a wedding here on the 14th of July. I think some of the oxford uni students found it a bit hard going but having gone to university in scotland..i loved it. Gorgeous court yard for photos and lots of room inside for a great ceilidh! Beautiful building.
