Nanny's ia a small family run cafe situated on the shores of Loch Shieldaig. Food is freshly prepared to order with local produce being used as much as possible, including shell fish caught daily in Loch Torridon. Great coffee, tasty home bakes and a friendly service awaits you.

Food was excellent, especially the BBQ food on the Friday evening. However, £16.50 for a burrito and side is over the top expensive. There's not many options in the area to eat so they seem to have made the most of the opportunity. Lovely friendly...More
