We were renting a cottage nearby to this tearoom and typically we were spending the days out adventuring the rest of the island (leaving too early and arriving too late) to get to sample their delights until we had a lazy(ish) day near the end of our week. And I'm so glad we did! We trapsed in hot and tired... More

On the back road from Carbost to the middle of Glen Brittle, it's easy to miss. A great place to sit out, in the balmy Scottish weather (but bring your midge cream, in case there aren't enough already). Service is friendly, and cake portions are good and generous. Photo prints of the area are for sale.

Thank you very much for your review of The Wee Tea Room. We are very glad you managed to find us as we readily admit we are quite remote. Hopefully the tea & cakes made up for your journey. More

We went out of the way to visit the tearoom because we read such good reviews about this place and wanted to stop by for tea even though we had a very filling lunch. We sat down at a table for four, it had a nice big window where we could see water streaming down the mountain face. There were... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of The Wee Tea Room. Unfavourable though it is. Firstly we run a business. When 4 people enter a small Tea Room and take up 1/3rd of it's capacity and then proceed to order two pots of tea, each for one person, and two cakes with the intention of sharing... More

I love how it's "in the middle of nowhere"... a lovely surprise. The view is divine and so are the cakes! I should have bought the cookbook, darn it.

The Scones and "real" coffee were lovely, very warm welcome from the lady, reasonable prices too. Maybe not as atmospheric as I would have thought it to be, a very modern house but still very nice. I bought the little cook book and small print of Sea Eagle. My only gripe was the rudeness of the gentleman who brought our... More

Hi, Many thanks for finding the time to post a review of TWTR. I am extremely sorry that you found me to be rude,it was certainly not my intention. I also apologise for not having the required 'atmosphere' you were looking for. However we have to work with what we've got. I seem to remember you asking me if I... More

We saw this place advertised at the Tallisker distillery and decided to give it a go. We did think at times we were on the wrong road but eventually found it. It was a very wet day but even so the scenery is stunning. I'd love to go back on a good day. We were welcomed by host John and... More

We are lucky enough to have TWTR as our •local• tea shop. Wonderful cake (the apple and walnut is to die for), amazing views and delightful company. We cannot recommend it highly enough. x

What a place to stop for lunch. The food was straight forward but tasty. Fab cakes and plenty of tea. Beautiful photos and a warm and friendly welcome. Plus lots of info on the local birds which helped us to identify our photos.
