Lovely joint in a tiny town near Beinn Eighe. Perfect place to fuel up before or after a hike. We visited twice in one day, before and after hike. Vegetarians and omnivores alike will be pleased at the variety on the menu and the tasty...More

Fantastic cafe delivering superb banana shake and beautiful cakes. A delight at the end of 60 miles on a bike!

Lovely atmosphere, great venue - very welcoming. Food is amazing. We stop for a cup of tea and cake then came back for an evening meal. The chicken was delicious as was the ice cream and strawberries for dessert. Lovely

It was a wet, grey and midgy Friday and the Whistle Stop Cafe was an oasis of respite! Great food, homemade cakes and bakes and super coffee. We were the support part of a group of family and friends cycling the NC500 and between us...More

Really disappointed with my quick stop at the Whistle Stop. Coffee okay (quite strong though) but toasted cheese scone was so thin I queried if it actually was a scone. Quick answer from the unsociable waitress, "Yes!" Not a hint of cheese flavouring either. Definitely...More

We stopped here after a very disappointing visit to a previously great cafe in Gairloch. And I must say we were really glad we did. Great friendly welcome, fantastic cake and a wonderful cream tea with scones and homemade jam to die for. Well priced...More

I received your question about the salad dressing but I was just a customer. Perhaps if you were to write to the café or call them, your question could be answered. I do agree - everything we have had there (dining in or... More
