We drove the length of Glen Lyon - what a beautiful place - and had a cream tea in this lovely café - shared with a little bird! It's a wonderful place to stop for refreshments, to take a walk and enjoy the views.

This lovely little tearoom was a welcome find in one of Scotland's longest and loveliest glens. Their delicious home made soups and cakes served by very friendly staff were enough to tempt us back for a 2nd visit later in the week.

This must be the most scenic place for tea I have ever visited. It is remote but surprisingly busy with hill walkers, bikers and motorists and everyone is tucking into lovely food. The soup is hearty and comes with big chunks of bread, the sandwiches are fresh and served with the lovely potato salad and the cakes are homemade and... More

Menu limited to a few sandwich choices and a couple of soups, plus scones, cakes, drinks etc. Super quick service produced sandwiches served with a small side salad, crisps and... More

Quick pleasant service. Sandwiches come with home made potato salad and crisps. Cakes home baked. View gorgeous. Glen Lyon is a great place to cycle or walk and the tea room which is also a shop and post office a perfect place to finish your day.

Must qualify as one of the remotest tea rooms ever! What on earth do they do in the winter? But a welcome little place in the middle of nowhere. Great walks at the this end of the glen and this place is stunning, even by Scottish standards. We enjoyed tea and excellent sandwiches before embarking up the gorge walk to... More
