Pit Stop

Travelling from Glasgow to Ullapool, this was an ideal location to stop of, recharge and stretch our legs. The dogs had a nice walk along the path, the toilets were clean and the coffee was a good blend and not expensive. Would definitely recommend to break up any journey.

l stopped off here for a break on my way up to Lewis. It's a pleasant location just off the A9 and a nice reataurant with outside tables available. The staff were helpful and the prices reasonable. If you need a stop this one is recommended.

The Ralia cafe is located about halfway between Perth and Inverness a small local business serving coffee, cakes, biscuits, sandwiches and soup. Relaxing, clean and a quiet place to chill on your journey. Plenty of parking open until 8pm in summer.

Super place to stop on the never-ending A9 journey. Sandwiches, coffee and cakes are all admirable - as is the free Wi-Fi.

Fresh sandwiches and tasty soup. Would have loved wee salad but don't serve sadly. A nice wee cafe off the A9.ideal for people with dogs but don't sit out if you have a bird phobia. Black head gulls swoop down..a pretty bird but noisy. Staff disinterested and toilets dingy and in need of spruce up..nonetheless good food in lovely location..

Ralia is a purpose-designed stopping-off point on the A9 road -- the main route to Inverness and one of the most difficult and dangerous roads in the UK. To have a reasonable place for refreshment is a very welcome bonus. I'm not sure whether to describe it as a café or a restaurant, but it does the job and the... More

I have to travel to the north of Scotland quite frequently and Ralia is my favourite place to stop on the A9 (although at 8 o'clock in the morning it's pretty much the only place to stop!). The coffee is always good, the bacon toasties and sandwiches are freshly made and the staff are always friendly. And there's free wi-fi... More

A good place for a break on the A9 with a pathway to walk the dog - or yourself! - a cafe and a shop with very nice gifts. The cafe is round and doesn't make best use of its space. No trays were available so we had to carry soup from the counter to the table which was awkward.... More

There isn't a lot of choice on this part of the A9 so I'm glad this cafe was good. Given so little competition there would be every reason why standard would not be high, but standards were good. Coffee and food were great and prices were ok. Definitely will be stopping off here again
