You would have more chance of buying a stamp during a postal strike than get a sandwich after 4.30pm. Would not suggest this place to anyone which is a shame as the location is lovely, overlooking the river but the waitress was condescending, sullen and...More

This is one of the nicest cafes I have ever been to in one of the most wonderful glens in Scotland. Go and do not delay. We were cycling. The cakes are fantastic and the proprietor very skilled at making them

We hadn't planned on stopping and eating, but when we spotted the outside tables outside of this very quaint post office/cafe/shop overlooking the river, we had to pull over. We honestly weren't expecting much, but ordered hopefully. We were warmly greeted from the counter and...More
