High Tea in the Highlands of Scotland...at the Boath House [02:37]
High Tea In The Highlands by Robyn Randolph From the minute we came onto the property we knew we were in for a treat. Four imposing, grand architectural columns highlight the greatness of this beautifully restored Georgian mansion. The entry and adjoining sitting rooms are a visual feast with much deliberate thought and attention to detail. Both chic commingled with traditional, contemporary wed with cultural whimsy, a most delicious ambiance ensues. The house is a sensory delight on every level.
