Selkies are mysterious Scottish Loch creatures that haven’t been seen for hundreds of years.
Except, that is, when afternoon tea is served at The Drymen Inn near Loch Lomond…
Then they have been known to rise from their watery lair and sit down to scrumptious sandwiches, scones and cakes (all washed down by a nice strong brew, of course).
So if you’d like to sample a spread fine enough to tempt the selkies, then snap up this Big Deal for a traditional or fizzy afternoon tea for two.
Day out in the Trossachs
Perched on the West Highland Way, The Drymen Inn is a cosy escape in Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.
As Glasgow and Edinburgh are just a 40-minute drive away, it’s also super easy to reach for a scenic day trip.
The inn’s family-run restaurant has earned itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for its fantastic reviews.
Exposed beams, stripped stone walls and a log burning stove all offer bags of atmosphere, plus there is a conservatory dining area for milder days.
In other words, it is an ideal setting for a truly Scottish afternoon tea experience.
Afternoon tea for two
Available seven days until March, today’s Big Deal is for an afternoon tea for two. You can also add on a chilled glass of Prosecco each with option two.
Afternoon tea at The Drymen Inn is made freshly each day. It includes a selection of sandwiches, scones, whipped cream, jam and cakes. Wash it all down with your choice of tea or coffee.
Whether you are planning to hike part of the West Highland Way or just fancy a more relaxing lochside ramble, this treat would be great to tuck into afterwards.
This 5pm customer loved their visit to The Drymen Inn. Here is a snippet of their review:
‘Homely and delicious. Restaurant was modern, lovely and warm on a cold, crisp Sunday afternoon. Staff were very welcoming & food delicious — yummy!’ 4/5
Lovely stocking filler gift
As well as being close to the shores of Loch Lomond, The Drymen Inn is also handy for attractions like The Devil’s Pulpit and Buchanan Castle.
So if you treat someone to this Big Deal then you’ll be giving them to a very scenic day out as well. And to make it an extra sparkling experience, why not throw in Prosecco too?
With any luck, you might even spot a selkie at the table next to you…
