Superb tea room in the wilds of highland Perthshire. Well worth the 60 mile trip from Perth. Scones piled high with proper cream - wonderful!

Beautiful countryside tea room

Beautiful small quaint tea room in the countryside of Aberfeldy. Hostess was extremely friendly and informative. We sat outside overlooking the stream and sheep grazing in the well manicured fields. Scenic drive from Kenmore to Aberfeldy.

We called in last week on holiday and what a beautiful place with a great tea room and really nice service and very quaint. The drive to The Bridge of Balgie is wonderful and after the tea room carry on across the bridge to Dochart falls and you will have had a great run out.

We weren't let down the mushroom soup was thick and hot served with warmed thick... More

First of all, this is a lovely tea room. You can just sit there drink a cup of tea and write postcards quietly, and even post them right there, as it serves as local post office as well. It is completely lost in Glen Lyon, with a view on what i suppose to be river Lyon. A bit like a... More

This has to be one of the best situated tea rooms in the UK. The approach is either along Glen Lyon or over the pass from Loch Tay, either route will provide stunning scenery. The tea-rooms are simple, and provide wholesome home made soups (I had a delicious mushroom soup) home made cakes and sandwiches made to order. We visited... More

We took a beautiful five kilometre off-road walk in Glen Lyon, at Innerwick, one drippy day. (You can find the walk details and map at www.walkhighlands.co.uk/perthshire/loch-tay.html under "Innerwick and Bridge of Balgie, Glen Lyon" - this is a superb website for walkers). When you walk back down from the glenside to the road, the path leads you directly to the... More
