We'd heard of the pottery and tea room and we were not disappointed. If you like walking, then this is ideal for you. We arrived, had tea and biscuits and headed along the path up the mountain, might be a hill, but looks like a...More

nestled into the hilltop overlooking Loch Ness a beautiful hidden treasure. Rachel is an exquisite potter and her works are beautiful, original and make wonderful gifts. I head up there overtime I am back in Scotland!

Lovely guy and very welcoming but not what we expected. Road wasn't the best up to it but comedic roads signs were entertaining. Very little to see on arrival.

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. You're quite right. The cafe was opened really for those on the Great Glen Way and those who climb our adjacent mountain - we don't otherwise advertise it. We are not a pit stop for the A82, but all...More
