As regular visitors to Lochgilphead we cannot recommend this cafe highly enough. The lattes we had were perfectly made but the cakes, they are truly delicious. They always taste frashly baked and are light and fluffy with amazing flavour.

Stopped for lunch whilst visiting the standing stones and cairns at Kilmartin. Struggled to find something I could have as everything included cheese so lentil soup was my only option. My partner had the venison burger with side salad which looked great if you ignored...More

Kilmartin Museum Cafe is open every day from 10 - 5 from March to end October and 11 - 4 during November and December. We close from Christmas until the beginning of March each year. The cafe provides lunches, cakes, teas and coffees. Wherever possible, our delicious and wholesome food is prepared on the premises and cooked to order. We cater for special diets on request and there are always vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options on offer. The cafe is on two levels, upstairs in the barn and downstairs in the green oak conservatory with views across Kilmartin Glen. We have wi-fi and daily papers so you can always keep in touch.
