We went looking for somewhere to eat and came across this little restaurant. The meals were excellent and my wife had a number of gluten free options available to her. The service was very good and the staff extremely pleasant.

I only visited the restaurant - not the owner of the establishment. They have a Facebook page - you could try contacting them via that. Hope you have a lovely holiday in beautiful Scotland :)
