    Afternoon tea at Cranachan

    My second time for Afternoon Tea and I was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful, they asked if any of our party had special dietary requirements. The food was lovely and plenty to choose from. We were sitting outside and it was a lovely atmosphere late Friday afternoon/early evening. We'll be back!
