Afternoon tea for two at Atholl Palace
Fine tea, finger sandwiches, delish scones and fancy cakes all served on a tiered stand
Historical hotel in Scottish Baronial style
Ideal outing for September Weekend Holiday
The French Revolution famously produced liberty, equality and solidarity.
All perfectly admirable in their own sort of Gallic way but really rather lacking when compared with defining British qualities. Of course, we are referring to the glory which is afternoon tea.
Celebrate one of Britain’s most loved traditions with today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea for two at the rather splendid Atholl Palace hotel in Pitlochry.
A very handsome building, the hotel stands overlooking wooded parkland grounds and the town to the surrounding hills.
Originally opened as the Athole Hydropathic in Victorian times, the hotel was built in the Scottish Baronial style and it retains many features of the traditional large country house.
As well as extensive grounds, it also houses a museum detailing the hotel’s lively history, especially the part it played in the Great Hydropathic Boom of the 1870s.
All of which is fine for building up an appetite for the main event: afternoon tea for two served on the plush Verandah.
This most traditional tea (or coffee) begins with freshly cut finger sandwiches and a sumptuous selection of savoury and sweet homemade scones, together with an assortment of cakes and tarts served on a tiered stand.
If you fancy a good gossip over some gleaming cutlery and swathes of starched white linen then this is the Big Deal for you.
Whether it’s planned as a day out with friends or a treat for a relative, today’s Big Deal is:
£15.95 instead of £31.90 for two people to enjoy Afternoon Tea at Atholl Palace, Pitlochry; a 50% saving
