Stopped here purely by chance as we were both starving. So glad we did!! Food was home cooked and delicious, I had a jacket tattie with haggis and cheese, followed by home made lemon treacle tart. My partner had the quiche, again, home made and he said the chips were the best he's ever had. So wished we lived a bit nearer, keep it up, you are doing a fab job

A friendly welcome along with a mug of lovely filtered coffee and a smashing warm treacle scone with butter & jam. Hit the spot before going up ‘Ben T’

We stopped here on our way to Fort William and what a pleasant surprise this little shop is!!
We enjoyed a nice hot cup of coffee and the best scones and cream we had during our visit to Scotland!
The shop also has a nice but small craft shop in the side room. I was lucky to find some unusual braids and ribbons so I left a happy girl.

Decided to stop here for lunch and what a find!
The staff were friendly, efficient and coping extremely well at a busy time.
Our order was taken promptly.
The lentil and bacon soup was excellent and the homemade date and apricot scone was delicious. All value for money.
The toilets were spotless.

After a week in this area and unfortunately meeting some disinterested staff in shops and cafes it was a pleasure to experience such hospitality.

Would highly recommend.

Thank you so much for such a positive review. I really appreciate the fact that you felt we were coping well as this year has been extremely busy....so thanks for that. It's also good to know that you enjoyed your lunch and that you went away as happy customers...thank you.
