This is the scene once the gates of the garden were opened to the general ticket holders - I was so pleased to have been granted privileged access at the start of the day.
Quite a few people asked me for information concerning The Pilgrims Table, and some were surprised when I told them it was located in Inverness. Still. I took all enquiries seriously.
The Queen and Prince Philip are now staying at Balmoral Castle for two months, and should they fancy a day trip to Inverness, The Pilgrims Table would be an ideal venue for a spot of lunch. Her Majesty may be interested to know that we serve her favourite dish (Coronation Chicken) on Wednesdays and Fridays.
