As a keen knitter was looking forward to combining lunch with a wool browse. I wasn't disappointed with either activity. We decided to pass on soup or sandwiches,instead enjoyed very large homemade scones. There is a large selection of quality craft materials featuring recognised brand names. I was pleased with my sale purchase ....a proper bargain. Karelia House is well... More

Drove up to here from Ayrshire after a recommendation from a quilting friend and after checking their website and was very pleasantly surprised. Firstly by the choice of quilting material etc they had to offer but also the fact they had a restaurant. We had a lovely lunch of homemade soup and a cheese scone which was to die for.... More

We visited with friends who live close by and often lunch here. We could understand why when our tasty home made soup and generously filled paninis arrived. We all thoroughly enjoyed our various choices and the lovely staff and the warm ambience created by the wood burning stove completed a super lunch experience. Good food and excellent value.

It is really good to visit Karelia. The food is very nice and there is a nice selection on offer. The shop is a paradise for folks who knit and sew. Courses are held very often and appear to be well supported by both locals and people from further away. Wood burning stoves are also on view.

What a wonderful fabric, notions, and knitting supplies store! Not only are craft/sewing items found here, but a visitor can also find a bit of Scotland memorabilia. If that's not enough, the cafe offers an absolutely delightful menu. So glad this was a stop on our Scotland travels.

Karelia House is a wonderful stop for quilters, knitters and those interested in textile crafts in Scotland! The fabric selection for quilters is quite large and for those traveling from outside the UK, they have a wonderful selection of Lewis & Irene fabrics. Their selection of knitting, crocheting wool is second to none. They carry a large selection of books,... More

I made a promise to write a review having discovered Karelia House while recently staying at the Mains of Taymouth. There was a leaflet in the Lodge that made mention of Karelia House so chancing upon the sign driving towards the B846 I decided to call. What a surprise!

Wonderful home made food served by extremely knowledgeable staff. All you need for quilting, knitting and other home decor ideas.The possibilities of attending courses run by their own professional staff enhances the experience. Also if you are thinking of putting a woodburner in to your property then this is the place to see a good display.
