We called into the tea room on our way back from a walk and were greeted with gorgeous homemade soup and possibly the best carrot cake we have ever tasted. This coupled with a friendly host (who gave us some really helpful advice on road conditions before the start of our walk), lovely Glen Lyon coffee and beautiful surroundings makes... More

We always try to make one autumn trip up what many see as the loveliest Glen in Scotland. This time we forsook cake and had delicious home made pea and bacon soup with very good bread.

What a joy to travel through unspoiled glen: river, valley and mountains. Fantastic 25 miles of single pass road including one post office and partially hidden castle.

We divert to this tearoom for our morning coffee on our regular visits between Glasgow and Orkney. The extra miles in beautiful scenery are rewarded by the "old fashioned" paper-filtered black coffee (not Americano!) and delicious, genuine home-baking, especially the cheese cake. The setting is also spectacular and everytime we go, the sun is shining! Thank you!

We stopped for a quick coffee but went for the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows. Also went nuts and had Carrot Cake. All was delicious and so fresh. Great little place and the Soups looked good too.

6 of us just arrived and although busy device was fast and friendly. Home made mushroom soup is best I have ever had. Other favourites were the carrot cake, chocolate Guinness cake and the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows. Will be back again next weekend. Thank you Becky.

The Autumn colours in Glen Lyon were gold, yellow and red. The home made soups were just as glorious. Mine was an excellent tomato, while my wife's was broccoli and Stilton which was very well balanced. It was a mid week lunch time and the cafe was very busy. Sharing tables simply increases the feeling of fun and friendship.

A bike ride round Glen Lyon and Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve wouldn't be complete without a stop at the Glen Lyon tearoom. Friendly service, home baking, decent coffee and if you use the outside tables - views over the River Lyon and towards the Lawers range

Description
Superb tea room in the wilds of highland Perthshire. Well worth the 60 mile trip from Perth. Scones piled high with proper cream - wonderful!
