We came across this restaurant one day and was so impressed by the food and service visited again during our short visit to the area. Food was reasonably priced and delicious all freshly made. The staff are friendly and efficient. Dogs are made welcome

We had a refreshing pot of tea at this cafe, taking in the peace and tranquility of the Loch. Heavenly!!! The food looked delicious, however with a dinner booked elsewhere we did not indulge. Great setting and friendly service.
