On our recent visit to Wick we stopped at this establishment for some refreshment on which we were charged the princely sum of ten pounds and fifty pence for two teas and two honey and oat biscuits this is really overcharging the tourist and not a very good advert for Scotland. Rest assured we will never darken this establishments door... More

Ralia Cafe is a lot nicer on the inside than you would expect judging from the exterior. The cafe is well thought-out, with places for charging your mobile phone and a few computers to use if you need to do so. Sandwiches are pre-made but good, and the coffee was also good.

This is an excellent stop whilst crossing the Cairngorm's to stretched ones legs, water the dogs and otherwise have a break. The surrounding scenery is pretty impressive as well. This is a must stop whenever I am visiting the Highlands, as it is another 100+ miles further north to reach out little haven.

Called here and were pleasantly surprised. Lovely walks for the dog on woodland trails. The food was delicious, freshly made sandwiches and homemade soup at reasonable prices. Very pleasant staff and attractive gift shop. Would recommend if looking for somewhere to stop on the A9.

Stopped in for a coffee break on the road from Glasgow to Inverness. Friendly folk, good coffee and hot chocolate and a nice chance to stretch our legs. They also have a range of whisky for sale.

Tucked in off the A9 we stopped off here as half way rest stop on our journey up to dornoch. The place was nice enough but the prices as we expected were expensive especially for pre packed sandwiches and things. Our kids are quite fussy eaters and my husband had actually went to our local Greggs before we set off... More

Plenty of parking in nice surroundings with picnic tables too. Ideal for families! Toilets were clean and functional.The cafe offered a good selection of well filled sandwiches, soup,cakes, crisps biscuits etc. We opted just for... More
