Description: Superb tea room in the wilds of highland Perthshire. Well worth the 60 mile trip from Perth. Scones piled high with proper cream - wonderful!

We had visited this tea room a couple of times three years ago. We enjoyed the tea rooms so much that on our recent visit to the area, staying near Killin, we were keen to revisit. There are some pleasant woodland walks in the area so we decided to park by the tea room and visit the tea room in the middle of our walk and at the end of the walk.

The tea room is only small inside but there is plenty of seating outside. It is in a beautiful location in the long and lovely Glen Lyon. On the first visit of the day we had soup, Jackie had Sweet Potato and Red Pepper and I had Chorizo, Cashew and Cauliflower. Both home made and very tasty. After the walk we had tea and scone with jam and cream. The service is very friendly and everything is reasonably priced,

The tea shop is closed Wednesday and Thursday and last orders are 4.45 pm. If you are in the area please stop and support this place.

Stopped on our way back down Glen Lyon since small car park was full on our way up.

On a sunny afternoon there is no more picturesque tha beautiful location in Scotland. With outside tables and river tumbling across the road from the tearoom this establishment makes the most of its situation. Arriving late afternoon the cafe was quieter.

We had coffee/tea and pistachio cake. The tea was fresh brewed but coffee was somewhat tasteless. Pistachio cake was moist but I would not rave about it .Overall average on food in a delightful setting. Toilet is dated and net curtain there over window is so discoloured that it looks as though it has been there for several years.

Stopped off in party of eight cyclists. One of our group was suffering form cold, she got given some extra blankets (and tea of course). Had scones, cake and shortbread too, stayed about an hour.

Fabulous wee tea room - the soup and sandwiches are to die for!!

Just wanted to refer to the review that mentions "pub grub" - this tea room doesn't serve pub grub so no idea where that comment comes from.

In fact it couldn't be further from "pub grub"!!

Going back to the area again this year and will most definitely pay a visit.
