We stopped here for soup and sandwich after a long hike in Glencoe. Locally brewed beer as great - lunch was simple but tasty. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Huge rock climbing and ice climbing walls offered entertainment whilst eating. Great gear store.

If you just want to climb, you can turn up and pay. I’d say if you wanted to participate in one of the instructed sessions, it would be safer to book.

Sorry not quite sure what the question is, I didn't mention breakfast in my review , I spoke mainly about the facilities themselves, having the cafe there is a bonus, it is an amazing place well worth the visit
