Stopped here for a bite of lunch. We sat for a while before anyone came to take our order. Enjoyed a baked potato with the 'Daily Special' filling. Followed that with a lovely coffee and a scone with jam and cream.

This part of Scotland (and not only) was a huge SURPRISE to us. Apparently not sensational, if compared to others in the country; but with a subtle charm that, little by little, gets inside… and you can never forget it anymore! Loch Croistean Coffee Shop...More
