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.
