This is a warm refuge on a rainyday! Tasty soups, cakes, flavoursome drinks and artwork make this a must do visit whenever you are travelling along the east coast of northern skye. Maggie is a very friendly and skilled host/cook, hope to return soon.

This weaver’s studio/light lunch/dessert place is worth seeking. We had delicious homemade soup, bread, and desserts and even bought some beautiful items made by the owner. I’m happy that we stopped here!

Situated on the stunning North East coast of the Isle of Skye, overlooking the picturesque Loch Mealt and the dramatic Trotternish Ridge, is the small hand weaving studio and gallery of Maggie Williams. Come and see Maggie at work on her 16-shaft dobby loom, chat to her about the weaving process and discover a unique range of contemporary home accessories, bags, scarves, throws and paintings. Whilst you're here, relax with a drink next to our cosy wood burner and enjoy a bowl of soup or some award winning home baking, all freshly prepared here at Ellishadder. In warmer weather why not enjoy the garden and the stunning views of Trotternish - absolute bliss on a warm, sunny day! Summer opening hours - Monday - Friday from 12 noon until 4.30pm. Please note that on Fridays the gallery / studio is open and not the tearoom.
