It’s been a such a busy few weeks/months that I’ve hardly had a day to myself this year. Not that I’m complaining, I do really enjoy being busy but sometimes it’s nice to have some downtime.

With so much going on lately, a quiet afternoon tea with my mum overlooking one of Scotland’s most famous settings was just what I needed. Although the weather let us down after a week of beautiful sunshine, it seemed typical that the rain started pouring down as soon as we set on our journey to The Lodge on Loch Lomond.

The weather may not have been up to what I was hoping for, but I’m pleased to say everything else made up for it. We felt so welcome as soon as we arrived in the traditional Scottish hotel. The staff could not have been better, quickly showing us to our cosy table overlooking the loch with two glasses of prosecco soon appearing. I have to admit, I am quite partial to an afternoon tea; I love sandwiches more than is probably normal so cute little sandwiches with cakes and prosecco is pretty much a dream dining situation for me.

I can honestly say this afternoon tea is up there with the best I’ve experienced. It was such a lovely atmosphere, quiet and relaxing but still with a lovely buzz. The food was so yummy, nice fillings of sandwiches (smoked salmon and cream cheese, ham and mustard and egg mayonnaise), just the right about of scones and cakes (the chocolate brownies were fab) with refillable pots of tea and coffee – and the aforementioned glasses of bubbly!

Although I have to admit some sunshine might have been the icing on the cake (excuse the pun), it has just gave us an excuse to return in the summer. And the loch still looks pretty in the hazy fog so the weather has not ruined the day.

We booked through an itison deal for £29 which included afternoon tea for two with glass of prosecco and access to the leisure facilities. Keep a look out for a similar deal or you can book afternoon tea for £26.50 per person, which includes afternoon tea and a glass of prosecco (£22.50 without prosecco), at
