For some people, a good day out involves bagging a Munro; running a 10K or bungee-jumping from a bridge.
For those of us who are not insane, the thought of a country drive with afternoon tea holds rather more appeal.
Get your genteel groove on with today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea for two from Cornhill House Hotel by Biggar.
Situated in ten acres of beautiful countryside and overlooking the River Clyde, Cornhill House Hotel is the perfect venue for a refined afternoon tea.
French Renaissance chateau
