Friendly service in a cafe with Scottish music on the stereo and a gift shop attached to it. Big breakfast with a side of haggis, not cheap but very tasty. Coffee was decent and cakes looked good.

Had an impromptu lunch here, must say service good, everything freshly made, food quality excellent and very large portions. It is competively price, but for the amount and quality of food well worth a visit.

We had stopped at so many visitor shops the last several days but this one had the best variety. They were less on some items seen at the NTS stores, but overall they had different and interesting gifts. So happy we stopped in here!

Stopped in twice, lovely food both times, cooked on the premises. Freshly made pea and ham soup was a delight. Big breakfast with haggis also highly recommended! Staff very friendly and helpful. Tourist information and visitor centre/shop also on site.

Stopped for lunch on the way to Glencoe. Friendly staff. Tourist information and a nice shop with a cafe at the back. The food was delicious. We ordered sandwiches - they were huge with loads of filling, side salad and crisps. Would come here again.

This has become something of a regular for Sunday lunch while out walking. It's always been good but over the last while it's upped it's game considerably. The menu tweaks have been worthwhile and the standard of soups and snacks have definately been improved. Highly...More
