Is there anything nicer than gathering your favourite people together for afternoon tea?
How better to enjoy yourselves than with a sumptuous spread of Scottish savoury and sweet treats?
Actually, we think you can up the ante even further by adding in Prosecco, an intimate room in a five star hotel and sweeping views of Edinburgh to the mix.
