We have not been here for a few years but this is a lovely oasis for a lunch and a look around the surrounding shops. Make sure to take in the whiskey shop!

Yes, we are all very sad that Giles Pearson is no longer running his antiques shop - he is still doing restoration, specialising in cane and rush seating, but there is no more rummaging and coming across a chance gem in his emporium. He will be sadly missed but time moves on! I am so glad you enjoyed a 'potter... More

Second visit to this wonderful attraction. Was here in the Autumn last year and again, still open in mid winter. Lovely shops with special gifts at various prices. The food and surrounds made the visit special, perhaps a little more expensive but well worth it. Alain some more exotic specials alongside Scottish fayre On the menu

My family and I have loved Logie steading since coming to live in the area several years ago. The river walks are stunning .There are some very steep paths on the way down to the river ,although there ARE flatter paths and they are well marked. We loved the old cafe before it moved to it's present position and had... More

Thank you so much for writing a review - and being so generous in explaining your change of mind about the café. We are so aware that there was a bumpy start to the season in the café. However, Gill and Weller and their brilliant team have worked really hard to make the larger premises work for everyone, and are... More

There are only a few shops at Logie Stteading however they are all worth visiting. The gallery had a lovely selection of art, the second hand book shop is worth browsing and the newish whisky and wine shop has a very interesting selection of spirits, including my new favourite of Edinburgh Gin flavoured with rhubarb and ginger!
