This tea room has wonderful views. Fabulous coffee in huge mugs, cakes and scones to die for. Friendly owner, great service. If I was a local I would enjoy shopping in the little convenience shop!

Great location at the foot of a couple of big cycling climbs out of the glen. Coffee and scones are consistently good.

Very unfriendly and reluctant to give us a cup of tea even though we were inside the 4.30 curfew sandwiches finish at 3.30 and are expensive and soup finishes at 4.00. Unfortunately nowhere else within miles

Superb tea room in the wilds of highland Perthshire. Well worth the 60 mile trip from Perth. Scones piled high with proper cream - wonderful!
