My wife and I holiday in Kinlochewe every year and have eaten in the Whistle Stop since it opened. The food is delicious, very well presented and served by courteous, friendly staff. The interior is cosy and welcoming and Lis is a lovely character as well as a first class cook!

Delicious home cooked food and value for money. Welcoming staff. BYO as not licensed. Cosy with a big log burner. Looks a basic barn but that is part of the attraction. Huge portions. Well worth a visit.

We stopped by here by chance after travelling for several hours via Loch Cluanie from Fort William. The Loch Ewe smoked salmon was one to die for with lashings of salmon and salad a plenty. The vegetation sandwich was well enjoyed by my wife. Great amusement at the plaques in the gents - favourite in photo!

We stopped here for morning tea and they had lovely cakes and scones. Lots of tea options too. Staff were friendly and it is a nice casual place to stop for a snack, breakfast or lunch.

The staff are all so friendly and welcoming and the food is delicious, although a few more veggie meals would be a nice addition. The best cup of tea, steak and ale pie and breakfast, not to mention the warm toffee cake..yum! Dog friendly too - lovely place!

We discovered this lovely little cafe by chance and were so pleased that we did. Lovely food, prepared to order and charming service into the bargain. The salad dressing is the best ever and we would love to know the recipe. The menu is imaginative and appealing and we hope to come back when we next visit the area.

After a hot, tiring walk on the Beinn Eighe mountain trail a cup of tea was in order. The Whistle Stop Cafe provided an enormous pot of this wonderful brew with huge cups to drink from too. None of those namby pamby useless affairs so often offered. It was so refreshing. We also ordered a special scone which came with... More

We had to made a reservation for diner and we did not regret it. The atmosphere is great. A mixture of restaurant and cafe/tea room. The service was a little slow but it was in a friendly way. The food was very good and you can feel it was made with fresh product. A good stop on your way from... More

This is a lovely quirky café just as you come in to Kinlochewe from Torridon. It has art by local artists and a lovely cosy wood burning stove. Good choice on the menu and the food is freshly cooked. We had an all day breakfast which was very tasty but was a little disappointed that sausages were of the mini... More
