where to eat

The Unicorn Café is a comfortable and pleasant place to enjoy a drink, a snack or a meal. Its name comes from the many statues and other representations of unicorns that can be seen around the castle. There are spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and the Wallace Monument from the café’s rooftop patio.
