We stopped in here on 25th February on the way up to Speyside. The hills all around were covered in snow and the place looked magical. I had popped in specifically to buy some "wee bothies" which I love and was pointed in the right direction by the friendly girl who worked there. Unfortunately we didn't have time to stop... More

Called in for a coffee and stayed to spend a fortune! Lovely warm welcome, quaint interior, lovely Aga where the home made scones come from and the kettle is boiled. The home made cakes are delicious and there are lots of lovely things to browse through. The hand made pottery is lovely. Plenty of parking. Well worth a visit.

Friendly, cosy, plenty of parking in a lovely setting. Some lovely gift ideas and tables scattered around to enjoy a homemade cake and a brew. Workshops are open plan so you can watch the crafts people at work.

Pottery, gifts, tea, coffee, cakes... A marvellous stopping spot before you launch yourself upon the barren lands of the old Devil's Elbow. Run by a helpful, friendly family offering a cheery welcome. I pause here a few times a year, and the only slight downside can be that its popularity sometimes means a wait for seats, but the changing variety... More

Visited the pottery and found it to be excellent, The staff are very friendly and helpful, Lots of lovely gifts in the shop and of course great baking and tea. There is also a super tourist information area with lots about the history of the area and including a great wee video of old film footage.

A 'hidden gem'. This tea room, pottery and gift shop offers a tremendous range of gifts, wonderfully displayed, in the most appealing of settings. Water for your tea or coffee is boiled on the aga which takes centre place on the shop floor. Delicious home baked cakes are also available. There was a choice of seating, indoor or out. We... More
