The Whisky Afternoon Tea at Cameron House may put hairs on your chest

Cameron House on Loch Lomond has been putting out some quirky marketing recently; not least the Live Like a Laird and Lady promo which we wrote about a month ago.

The hotel’s latest wheeze is to offer a ‘manly’ afternoon tea. Traditionally, afternoon tea has always been a little girlie. All that bone china, delicate cakes and little sarnies with the crusts cut off might chime with many women but it isn’t going to lure crowds of blokes in off the golf course.

Step forward Cameron House and their rather more butch take on the afternoon tea. Their concept includes a chest-beating combo of Glengoyne whisky; beef and mustard sarnies’ a black pudding Scotch egg; a mini burger; a haggis sausage roll and a mug (no pinkies held out here) of tea. Rather than a three-tiered cake stand, it is all served on a rugged slate.

For those who like their afternoon tea to have a liquid emphasis but don’t fancy the trip to Cameron House Hotel, there are a number of 5pm member restaurants that can help.

The Saint on Bath Street and The Blind Pig both specialise in mixing cocktails with cakes and sandwiches.
