Do any of the eateries at the base or up the mountain cater for coeliacs? I need to eat gluten free food to stay well.

Hi Rach, Yes, the restaurants and cafeteria's all offer gluten free options. I'd personally recommend the 'Super Bowl' in the lower cafeteria - quinoa, fresh vegetables and your choice of Chicken/Beef or Tofu!
