Stopped in for coffee and found so much more. Soups, ice creams and trendy coffees. Tourists, locals many different people meet at Nanny's. Stop in you'll be glad you did.

Cracking views at the side of the loch. Good food, if a little pricey (£6.95 seafood sandwich). Good quality though. Did a selection of cakes that looked fantastic, but I was trying to be good so didn't try one!! Recommended for a snack and to soak up the scenery.

We were greeted warmly when by chance we arrived hungry at this beautiful cafe. We tried squat lobster for the first time (in sandwiches) and were so pleased we did - they were delicious. The rest of the menu was good (the cakes looked delicious but we'd already eaten cake at a previous stop that day). Our only regret was... More

Popped in for a sweet snack while my other half was running over a Munro for the Celtman (did feel a little guilty!) the staff were very friendly, cakes and milkshakes were delicious! We sat outside with the dog and he was very welcome! We didn't eat any of the meals but they looked good! Great spot on the lochside... More

A really exciting menu with some superb home baking makes this restaurant stand out. A considerable amount of effort has gone into creating an oasis in Shieldaig! Lovely staff and great service compliment the restaurant. I needed a takeaway as I was working and it was no trouble for them.
