Taking Tea in Scotland today ...
Drawing pleasure from some Favourite Memories
I thought you might enjoy vicariously [and virtually!]

We're visiting the Loch Ness Lodge dating from around 1740!
located in Drumnadrochit
{on the west shore of Loch Ness at the foot of Glen Urquhart }

in the Highlands of Scotland 

Entering the richly wood pannelled and tartan carpeted hotel .

A warm invitation ...

One of the various settings for evening drinks showcases the sense of warmth - in colour, books and lighting...
[LuV that tartan tablecloth!]
Another area for lounging with fireplace,
basket of Scottish Thistle and aged leather sofa . . .

I was sooo pleased when our server led us to 
this cosy spot for taking tea...
A lovely bay window nook overlooking the rural landscape
{ providing for quiet conversation without other distraction }

Delicious tea served promptly to warm and relax, 
[ thanks to a charming and attentive Highlander ]

Scottish shortbread soon thoughtfully appeared -
tea was complete!


Here's to Scotland and Friends Taking Tea !

As much as I like taking tea at a table, a cozy spot by a window or fire gives it a more relaxed atmosphere.
How nice, and yummy looking shortbread to accompany the tea.

Love the plaid. Would love to take my tea in Scotland.
Good for you, Ruthie

Very fun! Haven't been to Scotland...pretty sad for a Brit, huh? Love the tartan. Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Hi There,
How I would love to visit Scotland and have tea with you there. My grandmother used to make the most delicious oatcakes and her family were Scottish. Thank you for visiting me. Have a wonderful week! Karen

Winnie said...

Wow, wish I was there having tea with you! What a charming spot and how cozy it looks. I love the books and the fireplace, too. Hope you have a marvelous time. Maybe some day I will get over there! Thanks for the kind visit today!

Oh, how lovely! I love the coziness of the tartan and the seating by the window. Just charming! Gorgeous photos! Thank you for sharing with us and joining me for tea.


Terri said...

Oh lovely, lovely, lovely! Thank you for sharing your trip with us. I truly enjoyed seeing this hotel and your tea. I love this white tea cup. It is very elegant.

Bernideen said...

Oh my - I feel all Scottish! How fun to take this trip and enjoy seeing these places first hand. So glad you shared all this Snap!

Bernideen said...

Oops - not Snap at all! I think - I goofed. Snap is from Twisty Lane Blog. I don't think you use your name but thank you just the same for sharing!

The Charm of Home said...

Oh, I would love to visit with you and take tea here! Lucky you!

LuAnn @ BackPorchervations said...

Sharon, I suppose I will have to add the sin of "envy" to the list of my wrongdoings. *sigh*

As it is, I will have to either:

a) blow up all the graphics to poster size and put them up in my house or,

b) draw a tartan pattern on a white mug and pretend I'm having tea in Scotland with you! :O)
