Afternoon tea in the North Sea, 20 miles off Hull, with Fred Olsen

Well our last bit of luxury on Black Watch was afternoon tea in the Observatory Lounge. As you can see it was 'spiffing' with the waiting staff being dressed in traditional white glove style whilst yours truly (below) went for the Country House look.

The tea costs £6.50 per person and is avaiable daily at 3 pm. I have to say it is worth every penny with a choice of quality teas from Gunpowder to Earl Grey and finishing off with hot scones.

A word of caution here. Although I enjoyed the walks put on by Ramblers Worldwide I would suggest you look at the grades of walks being offered before booking to ensure your chosen holiday will suit you. The staff in the Ramblers Worldwide offices can guide you through this. Apart from that it's a great idea and I'm sure it will be very popular.
