Prince Charles Opens Bed-And-Breakfast Hotel In Scotland Near Castle Once Owned By The Queen’s Mother

Prince Charles is embarking on a new business venture.

The Prince of Wales, 70, recently opened The Granary Lodge; a luxury bed-and-breakfast hotel within the grounds of the Castle of Mey in Cairness, Scotland.

The castle used to belong to the Queen’s mother and Charles’ grandmother – she purchased it back in 1952 and spent each August and October there.

The B&B’s website has now given royal fans a glimpse inside the hotel, boasting “10 individually styled bedrooms including two suites, a relaxing drawing room with beautiful views over the Pentland Firth to Orkney and a warm Highland welcome.”

The description added, “To start the day, we provide you with a delicious freshly-cooked breakfast with gluten-free and healthy options available.”

“Our staff will then be on hand to provide information and advice on what to see and do during your day, before rounding your day off with a wee dram from the bar while relaxing in our drawing room, enjoying the sunset,” it continued.

Clarence House revealed Charles had opened Granary Lodge back on May 1, writing: “Today, the Duke of Rothesay visited the Castle of Mey in Caithness, Scotland, to officially open the Granary Lodge. @PrincessFound has worked to create The Granary Lodge, a new bed and breakfast in the grounds of @castleofmey overlooking The North Sea to Orkney.”

“The accommodation will be owned and operated by the Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey Trust, and profits raised will go towards maintaining and operating the estate as a tourist destination in the North Highlands of Scotland.”
