  1. Unique Dome Restaurant

    Fantastic meal. Fantastic staff. Made our elopement perfect. The
    dome is great and so unique. Thank you very much.

  2. Attentive Service and Generous Portions

    Everything was lovely, although perhaps the portions are bigger
    than they used to be, we both struggled to finish any of our courses, but the
    food itself was amazing, very well prepared, looked amazing and well priced.
    The staff were lovely and very attentive as always. Can’t fault anything.

  3. Absolutely lovely lunch in dome. Food was fab
    Steven was a delight
    Will definitely book again
    Thank you

  4. My wife and I loved our dome dining experience. It was our Ruby Wedding Anniversary and wanted to celebrate in style. It lived up to our expectations and beyond. Food, staff and the surroundings were excellent, it really was special. Thank you.

  5. Thank you!

    Very happy with the service and food we received and delighted with the extra touch of thoughtfulness in recognising our friend’s birthday, without being asked! Despite the rain we all loved our lunch out in the Dome, which was lovely and warm. Thank you!

  6. Delightful

    Afternoon tea in a dome was absolutely delightful. Tasty fresh sandwiches and gorgeous variety of cakes and pastries, the fresh scones and clotted cream were amazing. Super friendly but still courteous, spot on, thank you!

  7. Highly recomend.

    Excellent stay and dining in the dome. Staff were extremely
    attentive with special touches which added to a very memorable stay.

  8. Lovely experience

    The only comment would be that the dome was a bit chilly going
    into it. We did try raise the temperature which did help a bit. Was a lovely
    experience although not cheap to hire !!!

  9. Wonderful experience, lovely waitress

    We will be back to do it again

  10. Cannot recommend it highly enough

    We had such a fantastic time at KinCraig Castle. We were here
    for a special occasion and had the most wonderful time. The staff were beyond
    helpful, polite and attentive, nothing was too much hassle. The food was
    absolutely delicious and a really high quality. The dome was also just an all
    round wonderful experience, we cannot recommend it highly enough. It is such
    a lovely and intimate experience for any occasion. We will hopefully be back

  11. Simply amazing experience!

    We booked a dome dining experience for my sisters 50th birthday. We were welcomed by such a lovely lady named Charlotte. She took such great care of us and made our time and my sister’s birthday celebrations so special. The venue and food was spectacular! It was the most delicious meal we had that week! The venue in the lounge was so cozy and makes you feel like you are going back in time. I cannot recommend this venue enough for any occasion. Thank you to Charlotte and the caterers for such a wonderful experience! We will definitely be back!

  12. Brilliant

    Ahead the afternoon tea in one of the domes for my mums
    birthday, it was all very delicious food and great that we were able to have
    our own music and the nice lady that served was was very kind and attentive

  13. A bit expensive

    Prices were on the high side

  14. My wife who is an excellent cook really enjoyed the level
    achieved by the chef, both in taste and presentation. It was her birthday
    treat and she enjoyed it.

  15. Highly recommend

    We all had a wonderful time in the Dome . Food was lovely
    Service was excellent and the experience amazing. We will be back.

  16. Amazing

    We had a fantastic meal and the service was excellent too , all
    thanks to Becky , she was amazing , thank you so much

  17. Will definitely be back

    Very friendly, Amy and the team were very helpful and no request
    was an inconvenience.

  18. Some small issues

    We had a 2 hour slot in one of the domes so booked a taxi for
    the end of the session however was not seated immediately so felt rushed
    towards the end. The food was good and staff were friendly however service
    was a little slow eg we were offered a welcome drink before being seated,
    while we waited in the lounge, and it did not arrive until after we were
    sitting at the table. Only small issues – A very nice evening overall.
    Thank you

  19. didn’t really meet our expectations

    I sent details of my wife’s dietary requirements as she has
    been ill for some time and we have just found out about her allergies.
    however there didn’t appear to be anything extra prepared for her needs
    other than the standard menu which only had 1 option for a starter and 1
    option for a main and both of which were a salad which was practically the
    same. We thought there may have been at least one more option on offer to
    her other than just a salad for both meals?

    This was our first meal out for a very long time and also the first date we
    have been on since covid pandemic began so although just a lunch, we were
    really looking fwd to it. it didn’t really meet our expectations if we are
    totally honest.

    We are local and have used the Kingcraig lots of times over the years. We
    would still use the Kingcraig again but feel they didn’t do anything to
    help cater for my wife’s dietary needs.

  20. Really enjoyable

    Everything was fab, friendly staff, lovely clean rooms.
    Delicious food , however a couple of more choices on the dinner menu would
    have been perfect but overall a really enjoyable great stay

  21. Amazing Experience. Brilliant Service

  22. Unique experience

    Such a great, unique stay near inverness. Really recommend
    dinner in one of the domes!

  23. Fantastic

    We had a fantastic evening on Saturday at Kincraig Castle . We
    had our meal in one of the Dome’s, everything was amazing, the food, the
    service, the ambiance, couldn’t fault anything. Thank to the staff for the
    attentive service and the lovely food

  24. Experience not to be forgotten.

    What a fantastic experience! The setting of the dome in the
    gardens was incredible, matched by first class service and food. Highly
    recommended for a experience not to be forgotten.

  25. A bit overpriced

    Great experience but we didn’t feel £20 per head for afternoon
    tea was justified given the selection and volume of food offered. £15 would
    be a more appropriate price point.

  26. Afternoon tea

    A warm and friendly welcome by staff and delicious food, served in a warm and comfortable Dome, surrounded by beautiful countryside, makes Kincraig Castle’s afternoon tea a very special and memorable occasion. We will be back – hopefully many times!!!

  27. Excelent service

    Hope our waitress was very nice and helpful.

  28. Exceptional

    Cannot fault the service at all, from booking online to
    arriving for our meal. When we arrived we were looked after by Holly. She
    is a credit to the hotel her service was exceptional. The food was
    excellent and served at the perfect intervals. Even the ice cream was the
    best we’d ever tasted.

  29. Will be back again

    Brilliant afternoon. Took my husband and my mum and dad there for afternoon tea. The food was delicious and the staff are so nice.

  30. Brilliant

    Dine at the Dome was fab, the view was amazing and the private feel to it was brilliant.
