Really like to stop off at Cuilin View for coffee and scones. Sit outside and savour the view of great views of the Cuillin ridge accompanied by yummy scones and coffee. If a dull day, great to sit inside and have a philosophical conversation with John!

I have sampled many scones in my time, but I have to say that this place really tops the lot.
And, you know what, it wasn't just the fantastic baking, breathtaking views and extraordinarily good value that made me go back twice in three days (and the only reason it wasn't three times was that the water was switched off by the service providers one of the days!)...the service was just brilliant.
The propertier was courteous, charming, outgoing and incredibly knowledgeable about...well, it seemed anything interesting. He clearly enjoyed his job - the understatement of the year - and took pleasure and pride in his customer service.
This went from smaller gestures like colour-coding the straws for our drinks, to giving us recommendations of things to do, to helping customers out with personal issues (I personally observed him lending directories to a party which required a number) all the way up to running around the village trying to find someone who had left behind their sunglasses.
I cannot recommend visiting it enough - for the baking, the service, the views, or even just the unique style in which the café is decorated.
You WILL be impressed, this place deserves all the awards and recognition it can get, because it's truly the most brilliant place I have ever visited. And I don't say THAT sort of thing lightly.

Good selection of teas and very good coffee. Home baking was a treat. The menu is limited to just a few things but that makes those few things very good. 3 of our group had toasties and the other 2 had scones. There was a decent selection of soft drinks available too.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming and we will certainly call again when next in Elgol. Don't go here if you are expecting a huge meal, it is a coffee shop not a restaurant but a very good coffee shop at that.
