Enjoyed a week-end visit for coffee and cakes. Nice home made sultana cake and carrot cake. Had a browse round the clothes, shoes, ornaments, etc.,and never leave without being tempted to buy something. Good time to see end of season bargains.

Stopped for breakfast as part of our coach party's day outing to Fort Augustus. For just three pounds enjoyed six items from a wide choice, including vegetarian options, freshly cooked and served piping hot with good coffee. Excellent value for money. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Just had time to look at the shoes (and buy a pair... More

This shopping outlet was used as a lunch stop for our tour. It really wasn't worth the stop. The service was slow. The food was poor, I ordered chicken curry. I was served a small bowl of rice with around a 1/2 cup of chicken cubes and a tasteless sauce that had nothing to do with curry. The goods in... More

A collection of different shops and outlets with cafe attached. We had a good browse around the different components and found some things worth buying. Has the usual Scottish items and more mundane day to day goods. Also has a bit of a museum with weaving equipment etc.

We chose to visit as my partner's elderly nan read the leaflet and was eager to visit. All I can day is whoever did the leaflet, did a bloody good job. Making some old buildings look like a grand shopping centre. Only good thing... The haggis and brie toastie.

Yes, this is a genuine large old mill on the banks of the River Ness (which originally powered the mill machinery). It's located at the very edge of the city on the right (East) bank of the Ness. And yes, the company bears an old and respected name. And yes again, there are old looms and other weaving equipment on... More

Noticed a difference in the variety of men and women's clothes available - didn't take us long to get round the shop. Cafe food was average. Chips need improving. Requested chips to be in a separate bowl for sharing (twice) but they arrived with panini. Average price for lunch food.
