Anyone for Tea

Posted on

Afternoon tea. It may be an English "invention" but we do it very well in the Highlands. When staying with us at The Old Manse it's well worth a visit to The Kincraig Castle Hotel (just 6 miles way) for afternoon tea. The proceedings start with a mini silky butternut squash soup, followed by finger sandwiches, savoury tartlet, shortbread, warmed home baked scones with clotted cream and jam; finishing with a chocolate mousse patisserie and tangy orange creme. Prosecco is optional! Word of advice, don't eat lunch prior to visiting.

 

We stayed here for one night at the end of our NC500 journey and I can't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we parked our car to the moment we left the next morning we were made to feel at home. We were met with a cup of tea and a chat in the garden on arrival and our host, Neil and Linda, frequently made sure that we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. They were attentive, friendly and more than accommodating and seemed like just genuinely nice people too. The room was lovely and spacious with a comfy bed and a well stocked tea tray with fresh milk on request. The guest lounge was a great place to relax and there were plenty of spaces to sit in the lovely garden when the weather is nice. Breakfast was delicious with great cakes made by the lovely Linda. The whole place felt like a luxury and yet felt like home. Thank you for a great stay
