Unlike the Scotland of old " sorry we stopped serving food at 2pm" ! this café is open to everyone
all through the day and what a treat.............not the usual pie, beans and chips but an amazing array of food to tempt even the most critical visitor. Friendly owner, great service and what an amazing scenery to look at. Look for their pavement sign post as it's not on the main road North.
The weary walker , climber and general visitor will not be disappointed.

Called in here for a cup of coffee as we passed through. Really impressed with the menu and friendly service. Great imaginative food choice, lovely cosy atmosphere.

An excellent place to stop for lunch, with good quality fresh food served by friendly staff. While it is great value, that's not to say it's particularly cheap as such (ie, not a budget choice – go to the Co-Op for that), and don't expect any spectacular views out the window while you're chowing down. However, what you do get is comfy sofas, an array of local artwork, newspapers, board games, tourist info, etc. Outside of the excellent food, I also very much appreciated the toilet humour (… in the toilets, natch). Overall, I'd say it's definitely worth a pit stop at the Whistle Stop...

Lovely small, cosy and quirky café/restaurant. We had dinner here on the first night of our holiday and it was excellent. I would never have tried fish and mushy peas with curry, a very inventive and tasty menu! The artwork and bits and bobs for sale are great too. A very friendly place where they are not too busy to chat to customers! We will definitely go back if in the area again.

This brilliant restaurant/cafe is a regular haunt for myself and a group of my friends as we motorcycle around the west highlands. We are always met with a warm welcome, great food and a reasonable bill but today (Sunday) was even better than normal.

Eight of us arrived to be told that the premises are always closed on a Sunday which we were unaware of. The owner was only in to prepare for the week ahead but seeing that we were disappointed we were offered tea or coffee and cake!

Fantastic is all I can say and I am already looking forward to my next visit (probably on a weekday or a Saturday!)
