Lovely food (tasty with generous portions), quick & friendly service. I would recommend the small drive from Fort Augustus to get the culinary and service delights.

We were disappointed with how quickly we were through Ft Augustus and hadn't stopped for lunch. We were delighted to find something without having to go any farther. While unassuming, the food was great (loved the broccoli/Stilton soup) and the portions were generous. The gift shop also carries some reasonably priced items including mugs and tea pots.

Almost a year on from our last visit to the Thistle Stop and its exactly the same; perfect!

Don't blink an eye or be too engrossed in the road ahead of you or you may miss a total delight of an eatery.

The Steak in Ale pie is still a veritable delight as is everything placed before you.

Patrick & Julie are truly lovely hosts and make everyone welcome, we look forward to our next visit there in just a couple of weeks time.

Not to be missed!

Having spent a week at Loch Lomond,and a further week in Inverness travelling around I am pleased to say that the food in this little cafe was as good, if not better, as any in some of the "posh"?? restuarants we ate in.Well done!

Popped in to grab a takeaway coffee after having driven past several over the last few miles. Prompt and pleasant service, clean facilities, excellent value for money and rather delicious cakes. Very impressed!
