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.

Delicious home-baked cakes, lovely salads, beautiful setting. If the weather's nice and the midges aren't biting, we highly recommend the Colonsay House Gardens and the Cafe, where you can sit outside and also enjoy the beautiful gardens. If the weather's not so good, then seating...More
