Could this be the most luxurious place in the whole of Scotland to indulge in afternoon tea? It's certainly up there with the best. Picture this; a five-star hotel with panoramic views of the rolling hills of Perthshire, sumptuous décor, crisp white table linens, tiers of delicate finger sandwiches, scones and French fancies…

If you’re looking for somewhere truly special to mark an occasion, it’s got to be Gleneagles. Book a table in the newly refurbished Glendevon Room (pictured below) and experience for yourself the reason it’s the go-to place for A-listers.
