Description: We are an award winning department store based in beautiful Beauly in The Highlands of Scotland. We are the Best Gift Retailer Scotland 2015 and also Finalist Best Lifestyle, Homewares and Gifts 2016. Our shop is a mini, bespoke department store with a tendency towards being slightly bonkers. We showcase the very best selection of clothing, gifts, books, music and smellies so make sure you have plenty time to spare when you step through our doors. You could be with us for some time. We are shopping heaven. As Roald Dahl said "Tremendous things are in store for you! Wonderful surprises await you!"

Our visit to The Old School for elevenses was one of the highlights of our weeks holiday. We loved how you have kept the old style classroom feel. (The teapot light shades are fabby!) The home baking is displayed beautifully and does not disappoint on any level! The staff are friendly both in the restaurant and in the beautiful gift shop. If we lived closer to you, we would definitely be regulars. You are our "Top of the Class" in Beauly - 10/10. Well Done!

We stopped for lunch here as we had never been before and a neighbour recommend them to us. We had the soup and sandwich deal. The soup was homemade mushroom and was delicious, a side salad and a sandwich of your choice. The restaurant itself is light and clean and the staff were very friendly. Would definitely go back again.

Don't know about you, but these days I take decent food as being a given - just the choice and presentation to be argued over - and focus on the service. I thought the Old School had the service absolutely right - pleasant, attentive and well-trained staff; no rush to eat up and get out. So 5/5 for that.

We had the breakfast - croissant, scrambled egg and bacon - all nicely done - excellent local bacon, though with the egg cooked to safety standard (overdone from my point of view). Decent coffee (repeated, as the standard cup is a bit on the small side) finished it off. Hmm - 3.5/5.

The total bill was just shy of £20 - maybe a wee bit steep considering...

To improve: don't nuke the eggs, and offer free coffee refills. Then 5/5.

The coffee is excellent as is the home baking.The seats aren't the most comfortable but I suppose they like to simulate a school effect! The shop is interesting with a good selection of unusual gifts and books.
