From the mechanical reaping machine via the mackintosh jacket to Jamie Oliver, the British have invented many things which have contributed greatly to global happiness and wellbeing.
However, were the UK to slip beneath the waves, we would be most fondly remembered for afternoon tea – possibly the pinnacle of British innovation.
Wave a flag for afternoon tea with today’s Big Deal at the delightful Strathblane Country House Hotel.
Located on the Milngavie Road in Strathblane, the hotel was originally built in Queen Victoria’s era and it retains its original character along with modern comforts.

Sitting in its own, well tended grounds, Strathblane Country House Hotel is a gorgeous spot for afternoon tea whether you take it in the elegant interior of the house or in the sunshine in the gardens.

In short, Strathblane Country House Hotel is perfectly placed for a run out with friends or family with a delicious afternoon tea at the heart of the trip.
