Tea time – or tee time?

Tea time – or tee time?

There’s nothing to beat a nice up of tea and you’ll find our area awash with quaint and contemporary tearooms and cafes, where you can kill two birds with one stone – or multi tasking if you prefer.

Rest your feet in The Glenturret café after you’ve toured the distillery – which is Scotland’s oldest working distillery. In a sector which is renowned for its tradition, there’s a genuine reverence in the distillery from the original processes. Mashing by hand and cutting by eye are still the watch words here.  

Build up an appetite on an off road safari or a mountain bike – or even panning for gold where you keep what you find! – at The Highland Safari café. They also have hand reared red deer and barn owls.

Delve into Scotland baronial past at spectacular Glamis Castle – childhood home of The Queen Mother and birthplace of Princess Margaret before a restorative stop in the Victorian Kitchen Restaurant. Or if you want to mis you tees and teas – head to The Room With a View Restaurant at Piperdam  and watch others make their way around the course while you indulge in their Prosecco afternoon tea.

If coffee’s more you thing then a visit – or a time travel back to 1868 – to Braithwaite’s is a must. No coffee shop here but generations of coffee roasting experience in an atmospheric time capsule shop.
