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

We found this charming little tea room when a particularly wet day kept us off the hills, and I'm so pleased we did. The cake, we both had lemon and raspberry, was really lovely , and there was a selection of herbal teas, coffees and hot chocolate to choose from. The owner was friendly, the location beautiful , even in... More

Four of us stopped here recently on a Sunday about 1pm. As the weather was glorious, the place was quite busy. We sat outside taking in the stunning views and sunshine. Sandwiches, soup and coffee all good value and tasty. As this is the only eatery in quite some distance it has a bit of a captured audience but given... More

Stopped here for lunch after a night out under the stars in the Munros of upper Glen Lyon. Had the Cheese & Pickle sandwiches which came with home made potato salad, crisps & salad. The crisps are good quality & the salad likewise. The pickle wasn't Branston & if not home made, certainly tasted like it. The cost of the... More

We were walking in the area on a beautiful Spring day and grabbed the opportunity to experience The Glen Lyon Tearoom. We were not disappointed. What a beautiful situation and what a great offering in the middle of nowhere. Home-made soup was delicious and the cakes looked very enticing ..... my sandwich was a bit ordinary though. Service was welcoming,... More

A welcome place for sustenance after walking in Glen Lyon and full marks for being open in March when other places are still closed. Having 2 dogs we're used to dining al fresco but at least here there's a choice as undercover al fresco is also available - with a view. Soup, sandwiches and cakes on offer.... together with friendly... More

You have to visit this tea roo, it's also the village post office and shop. Its location is stunning, the home soup was so welcome on a cold day. We even met up with the local shepherds who had come off the mountain for lunch, it was so like stepping back in time.

The drive up Glenlyon is a delight and if you don't stop at this tearoom you'll have missed a treat ad will end up hungry as there is nowhere else. It is definitely worth parking up and enjoying the views and some delicious home made soup and perhaps a lovely scone too. It is very busy on a fine day... More
