Cute little cafe, delicious well presented food, friendly owners. We visited a lot of vegetarian/vegan cafes in Scotland and it is definitely the most memorable one. I wish it would be closer to Edinburgh so we could go back! Perfect reason to visit Skye again!

Situated on the stunning North East coast of the Isle of Skye, overlooking the picturesque Loch Mealt and the dramatic Trotternish Ridge, is the small hand weaving studio and gallery of Maggie Williams. Come and see Maggie at work on her 16-shaft dobby loom, chat to her about the weaving process and discover a unique range of contemporary home accessories, bags, scarves, throws and paintings. Whilst you're here, relax with a drink next to our cosy wood burner and enjoy a bowl of soup or some award winning home baking, all freshly prepared here at Ellishadder. In warmer weather why not enjoy the garden and the stunning views of Trotternish - absolute bliss on a warm, sunny day! Winter opening hours 2017/2018 We are closed through January and re-open in February
