This is a gem of a place,outside it is from Victorian era but inside you are surrounded by glass conservatory and you are next to the water of Loch Katrine with great views of surrounding hills complete with a dusting of snow.Service and food was excellent.

Stopped here for lunch on a recent cycle in the area. Well worth the stop. The view is beautiful, the service was efficient and friendly and the macaroni cheese - I will be coming back for. The cafe is licensed and sits on the pier at Stronachlachar at the west end of Loch Katrine. It's worth the drive from Aberfoyle,... More

After a day's touring in the Trossachs we needed coffee and cake. A friendly stop with welcoming staff and excellent coffee and cake. And a fantastic view thrown in for free!
