I visited here with my Mother-in-law and she very much enjoyed the soup that was on the menu. The coffee and cakes was a extra bonus. There is also a nice selection of top quality goods available for you to purchase. We will be back.

Wonderful location, fantastic service. Little gift store had locally made items of reasonable price. Most genuine items I have seen in Scotland. Take the time to stop - it is worth it.

Recently popped in for coffee and cake. Nice selection of home baking. Lovely well maintained accommodation in beautiful location. Owners and staff were very relaxed and friendly. Enjoyed a browse in the gallery and gift shop. Commendable enterprise. Happy to recommend.

A small, intimate tearoom with home baked cakes and scones - now soup as well. The proceeds go to charity, Mary's Meals and Children's Hospice Association, Scotland. An inspiration of what you can do in retirement.
