This is a good place to take a break, enjoy the wonderful views of Castle Stalker and the Loch and Highlands beyond. The food is good with pleasant staff - we had ginger beers and cake both good and a 'mooch' around the gift shop if worthwhile we bough several things - there is plenty of choice and the prices...

The best scones in the highlands (well in a wide area anyway), the coffee is good too as is the shop which has a good range of gifts and art including photography. The view is just stunning.

This relatively new Tearoom is set just off the main road from Oban to Fort William at Appin. It provides beautiful views of Loch Linnhe with the (occupied) Castle Stalker at the forefront. The Tearoom provides delicious soup, sandwiches, home-made burgers, paninis etc., together with a good selection of home-madecakes, meringues and other goodies. This is an ideal stop for... More

Despite there being a large sign to the side of the road with '9.30-5', at 4pm the whole building was closed! Disappointing.

People like you shouldn't have the right to publicly slander businesses without good reason. You rattle off a poisonous little speel, giving no consideration to the circumstances or people involved. Are you familiar with the term "Keyboard warrior"? We closed at 4:45pm on said day due to one of our staff members being called out by the Fire Brigade to... More

Our timing was off for pie, but we got ice cream...which was delicious. The gift shop is well stocked with reasonably priced gifts. The view of the castle from the cafe is nice, and there's a path that takes you closer to the water for an even better view.

We came across this my chance, I think we were looking for a town along the way. Drove past a good few miles then turned back and were quite ready for some delicious food. Certainly we were not disappointed, their menu includes gluten-free fare ( for any who are interested). We were served very well by the ladies in the... More

Great spot to stop on the road, stretch your legs walking down to the hillside overlooking the castle and then sit inside with a wonderful view, tasty food adn a hot beveridge.Friendly staff. Only downside was the toilets need sorting.

The sun was shining, the sea was sparkling blue and the view from outside the cafe was to die for.Good cup of tea and a nice bit of home made carrot cake.What wasn't to like? Have marked it down as a pit stop next time I'm in this neck of the woods.Lovely place and they had a very nice exhibition... More
