We were on our way to Balmoral from Pitlochry but it started to snow heavily. We were forced us to turn around because we got stuck. This pottery is just near to Spittal of Glenshee. We found it by accident but it was a lucky find. I like the way they have tables in amongst the items on sale. They... More

After driving through Glenisla, we stopped here for coffee and cake, which were excellent, especially as coffee was served in individual cafetier. This is a very quirky place with a few tables scattered amongst the displays of a wide variety of gifts. Water is boiled on an aga in the large room, homemade cakes are displayed on circular shelves in... More

Nice hosting and a relaxed atmosphere, order taken, whilst the drink is prepared. Several tables dispersed about the display area. Soon the drinks and cake or scones arrive, freshly prepared. Recommendation, if in the area visit this place.

We stopped here by accident. The signposts should be larger and should say "BEST BAKING!" We had been disappointed in the quality of baking at Balmoral Castle and were hesitant about where to stop, but were so glad we did. The owners were delightful, the cakes were light as air and the souvenirs were not your normal tourist tat. Clean,... More

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.
