Strawberries & Cream Afternoon Tea Spa Offer

Summer is finally here… although we don’t want to curse it by typing this! The first rays of sunshine signalled an exciting dash to dust off our sandals and sunglasses at The Scotsman, followed by a sashay down the cobbled streets of Edinburgh in our long-forgotten summer wardrobes. It’s has also seen us preparing to jet off on hot summer holidays and receiving piles of exquisitely enveloped wedding invitations, and so we felt it was fitting to create an offer that provides the perfect opportunity to pamper in preparation for all the important events this season.  Our relaxing remedy offers the choice from a selection of 45 minute Stress-Fix spa treatments, followed by a delicious summertime inspired Afternoon Tea for £65 per person – ensuring you feel your very best inside and out…and has had our team indulging in some ‘me-time’ this summer.

When we’re in need of an escape or simply 45 minutes of pure indulgence, the tranquil Stress-Fix spa treatments available at Scotsman Spa are our go-to treatments, especially as they’re the perfect length for lunch-hour. Choosing from manicure to pedicure, massage or facial, we can’t help but feel soothed by the aromatic waves of lavender and sage scents the Aveda team use. The Stress-Fix Body Massage offers Swedish and deep tissue massage with foot reflexology and acupressure point, all while guiding into a calming mediation; perfect for when you’re in need of switching off and feeling refreshed from head-to-toe. However the Scotsman team favourite has to be the Aveda Stress-Fix Manicure (with the ladies at least)… acupressure and reflexology experiences lead to final outcome of nails polished to perfection, and it allows us the chance to have a good gossip too.

However the cherry on top of this offer is the ‘Strawberries and Cream Afternoon Tea’ served in North Bridge Brasserie. Followed by the Stress-Fix spa treatment, the offer includes a sweet and savoury selection inspired by the Scottish summertime, available gluten-free also. With ground almonds and succulent strawberries encased in the shortcrust pastry of the Bakewell tarts, the truly tempting Champagne and truffle cupcakes and our favourite, sweet and fruity Pimms Trifle, the three-tiers of Afternoon Tea have had us reminiscing over summertime’s well spent driving down country lanes, having high teas in quaint villages and light refreshments at bunting trimmed fetes. There is definitely nothing we love more than enjoying Scotland in the sunshine…and all the tempting treats that come with it!

Though more often than not (ahem), we have chosen to wash down our Afternoon Tea delights with the complimentary Seduction Cocktail, which combines fresh raspberries and lime with Disaronno Amaretto, Crème de Cassis and spiced wine (yum!), there is also an array of teas and coffees on offer. Whether looking for an indulging offer for one or a glamorous day out for a group, it is fast-becoming our favourite way to spend an afternoon this summer at The Scotsman. Available until the end of July.
