“Nice little Pit-Stop”
Review of The Watermill - CLOSED

We popped in here on two consecutive days for coffee and home-made cake. The two girls behind the counter give a big smile as soon as anyone enters the door and one is made to feel most welcome. On the second visit a lady behind us (who turned out to be the Scottish owner) remarked "How nice to hear a Scottish accent". That says a lot about the Western Highlands and Islands in summer.

Just good coffee, great cake and friendly staff. My girlfriend had the passion cake and I had the coffee cake and both were lovely.

As the title says this is a nice little cafe. It has easy car parking, tasty food, is accessible and has nice facilities (not sure if these are accessible though).

We just had coffee and cake both of which were tasty and slightly larger than you usually get. The staff were friendly and helpful, they were also nicely relaxed so didn't pester us as is often the case.

The views are poor by Skye standards but sitting outside on the two available chairs was very pleasant on a sunny day. Most of the seating is indoors though. There is a small waterfall that is pleasant to watch just a little walk along. The only bad thing about this coffee shop is that it is next door to the serpentarium.

Worth a stop.

This cafe in the old mill building is a welcome stop when travelling through. Great food and coffee, and it's right next door to the Serpentarium, which the kids will enjoy.
