Beautiful medieval castle which served as an important stronghold in the Boschebroek in the old days . Great restaurant and inn. We stayed in nice private room for a family reunion. The food was great ! Called the owner if he allowed me to fly my drone above his castle and he had not problems what it ! Thanks for that see picture. Kasteel Maurick van harte aanbevolen !

Beautiful ambiance. Even though it was a rainy day, in door it felt nice and cozy and we enjoyed a well presented, tasteful high tea. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and teas they were serving. Would definatly recommend this high tea at such a special location.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
