The cafe is extremely small and very cramped, but the soup was fantastic and so was the rest of the lunch we had. Service was fast and friendly and we admired the lady staff member so much for her calm and professional manner, working in...More

Really great stop over fab cakes and very nice staff too. We were able to sit outside with the dog and enjoy the garden. There is an extra cost for visiting the gardens of £2.50.

Beautiful house and stunning gardens, hard to remember that you're on a Hebridean Island with the palm trees and agapanthus. Lovely quiet corners, birds singing and lots of butterflies. Lovely cafe with home made cakes very reasonably priced. I could happily spend a week of...More
