We lucked out and got the last table at the cafe after getting off the Jacobite from Fort William. We had an hour until our ferry left for the Isle of Skye and the cafe was a quick walk from the train station and ferries...More

I had a BLT with a pint of Sky Black and Laguvulin 16 yr. Can't remember what my wife had but we split a piece of awesome chocolate cake for dessert...service took 3-4 minutes. I hadn't even finished my whisky yet and the food came...More

Popped in for a drink and saw that we could only stay for lunch. Glad we did as although the food was simple it was delicious. The salad was subtly dressed and the sandwich and potatoes were good too. But the side curried pulses were...More
