The Perfume Studio is probably more aptly described as a Visitor Centre. We have plenty to do on a rainy day: whilst we are situated on the shores of Loch Ewe, you can also see amazing views out towards the Torridan Mountains and the Minch. The views can be a real 'weather theatre'. We have a wonderful cafe, serving coffees, teas and cakes, as well as lunches. All of our baking is homemade by ourselves. All food served in the cafe is made fresh to order, so no 'fast food' here! The shop offers not only our own Perfume Studio products, made on site such as soaps, cremes, body washes, body oils and perfumes, but small gift items too, including locally made jewellery and woollens, ceramics, themed gifts, cushions and a multitude of chutneys and pickles! We also have the Image Studio and whilst this comes to life during the winter months when the light is at its best in the Highlands for photographers, during the summer it is a peaceful area where people can watch our on-screen photography display, peruse books and magazines and have a debate about the photographs on the large display board. Visit Scotland accredit us with a 5* rating.

Stopped here on our NC500 tour. Not a great amount of good stops on this tour and this a really pleasant suprise. Remote but with stunning views and a well set up cafe/visit centre

Went here for afternoon coffee and cakes, and were delighted by what we had. Lunch menu looked nice too, but not cheap, but everything is locally sourced

Lovely food and a pleasant small gift shop. Staff just ok, more efficient than friendly. Felt as if we were a necessary nuisance!
