By dangerous I am referring to your wallet. You go to the most visually attractive building, the converted watermill, intending to only have a light lunch, but somehow, when you emerge much later, you will also be carrying several books. This is a wonderful independent bookshop. The displays are works of art and cover several rooms. It has been voted... More

We normally drive up to Queens View and come back via Aberfeldy for lunch. Lovely for a light lunch, cake and coffee (always busy when we have been there but we always get a table) and they have a good selection of books, a small selection of CD's with an exhibition area too. If you go out of the Mill... More

An old watermill turned into a bookstore and cafe, with few casual seatings, nice cake and good coffee. Simple but very pleasant place, especially for the environment and atmosphere although sandwiches looked very good. Planty of books to go through while having your coffee !

Fancied a coffee and a sit down as we wandered round Aberfeldy. Stumbled upon the Watermill. There's a bookshop on the ground floor, perfect for a browse and a gallery upstairs which we didn't go to. On the lower level, there's the cafe. You could sit there all day, reading the papers or going through the books they have scattered... More

Stopped here a few times now and the coffee is consistently great. Always a good selection of cakes too. What more is there to say? Well worth a visit. I will be back.

I had been dreaming of the miele coffee here since my last visit two years ago and I wasn't disappointed. Lunch was simply delicious eaten outside in the summer sun. Soup delicious. Service lovely.

What are groovy little cafe we discovered and had lunch at! The soup was lovely and the sandwiches superb but what was best about this place was the aspect out onto the open area and the flowing stream! A great place to just stop at and chill!

I have been here before and I go because of the amazing tea that they give you. The choice is fabulous and the cake it well worth the eating!

We didn't have a meal here but the coffee was really great. I like mine strong and it was all of that. Service was great, as was the ambience. Nice seating outdoors or in and the famous bookshop upstairs is also worth a visit. In a good off-road location with parking. Not a place to miss on a visit to... More
