Tea room next door to croft very nice indeed. Costs £2.50 to enter croft, with a leaflet to explain, that you give back. Croft full of exhibits, giving you a feel for the living conditions and life of a crofter.

We stopped at the Laidhay Croft Museum for a cuppa and very nice it was. Lots of homemade cakes and snacks to choose from. Sit inside or outside depending on the weather. There is also a loo. Very friendly ladies are awaiting to greet you.
