Found this little gem on the way across to Atterdale Gardens. Looks like a cared for tin hut at the start of many miles of single track road. Very friendly atmosphere, superb coffee and a good place to chat with new acquaintances. Toilets clean and well decorated. Would love to go back for a meal next time.

Stopped for a light lunch on our way from Torridon to Inverness. The quality of the food was good and the staff were attentive and efficient. I tend to agree with some of the other reviews that the prices are on the high side but overall would recommend as a lunch stop. The menu for evening meals looked good so... More

We stopped here by chance on the way from Applecross heading north and we are so glad we did. The Cafe was nicely decorated with local artwork and the was fairly busy given it was not even mid morning when we arrived. The food was incredible - best porridge that I have ever had, would probably drive the 200 miles... More

Passing through Kinlochewe and feeling a bit peckish we saw the sign for the Whistle Stop cafe and called in. The outside is a strange corrugated affair but inside is a nice haven. The cafe has tables outside but I was fed up with the midges having been on the hills prior. The menu is quite extensive, homely fair and... More

Tea and scones were excellent but it would have been even better if we had been allowed inside. We were told it was full but I counted at least eight places including a table with nobody sat there. Maybe they dont like motorcyclists? Even when it started raining we were kept outside. Strange.

Should you be passing through Kinlochewe you would do well to call at the Whistle Stop. This is a very homely and welcoming establishment providing good quality, reasonably priced fare. Most enjoyable!

My wife and I had breakfast here the other day, on our touring holiday of north-west Scotland. We were staying in our motor home at the nearby Caravan Club site and the wardens recommended it to us. The outside was unusual in that it was clad with brightly painted corrugated iron! Do not let that put you off. It was... More

Stopped off on NC500 route. What a fabulous breakfast served by some fantastic ladies who were very friendly. All local fresh ingredients. Superb. Fresh, still warm out the oven scones! Definitely worth a stop. You won't be disappointed!!
