We have now had the absolute delight of returning to the Whistle Stop Café. If anything, I would say that the dinner we had was PERFECT. It was difficult to choose - everything on the menu and the daily specials looked yummy. We selected a courgette tart with cheeses and pesto as a starter (you could make a meal out... More

Found by accident. Amazing! Food was so good we came here again the following night. Had cod the first night and salmon the second. Partner had haggis in a pie which he loved. The lady who cooks is obviously very talented but from talking to her I know she would never leave there. It's a long way but well worth... More

Well, after one of the most remote but wonderful drives of our life we found that our guide recommended this place. We drove up, somewhat bemused but thought we'd give it a go. Simple philosophy - a very varied menu with all sorts served all day up to 9p.m. I opted for that most basic of dishes, liver, mashed potato,... More

I stumbled across this delight on a drive to Torridon. The name drew me and and the look and setting of the place! I understand it was the old village hall. Nice warm welcome and plenty of choice. I went for beef and mushroom pie, it was delicious, gravy was to die for! Would have had a sweet but too... More

Stopped off for lunch. Gorgeous wee place with eclectic decor, nice chunky tables, a warm welcome, interesting art and a cosy stove! Had delicious food. Son said it was the best egg mayo sandwich ever. Tasty soup, imaginative salad and puddings to die for. Also the first decent mug of coffee in a week. This rounded off our hols just... More

The Whistle Stop cafe was once a village hall, and has been transformed into a cosy eatery for that quick bite, or for a delicious three course meal. It is very relaxed and informal, welcoming too - especially when the stove is lit! If your travelling along the A832, this is a must stop, where ever your destination may be.... More

What a great wee find, friendly staff, lovely hot tea and fantastic home baking. Toilets very clean with nice products. Definitely worth a visit.

This was a real find! Having found that most places stopped serving lunch at 2pm we were so relieved to find this open! Although the exterior is a little underwhelming, the interior is really welcoming and the food excellent and very well presented. Friendly staff without being too fussy. Wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend.
