90th celebration meal@Bunrannoch House

Martin Krop

Saturday was the only night we could get everyone together at Bunrannoch House – 16 in all. See photos of the outside od the house and the beautiful surrounding countryside here and here

To avoid us having to cook we hired Martin Krop of Delicate Catering ( in Inverness to prepare and serve a three-course meal. He was most impressed by the facilities at Bunrannoch - professional kitchen, plentilful crockery and glassware and lovely dining room.

We were delighted that the owner of the house, Rita, was able to join us for the celebratory glass of bubbly and the delicious canapés prepared by Martin.
