Being a Monday, another local coffee house was closed, so we thought we would give this place a try for our afternoon coffee. A strange, heavily themed coffee shop behind Hillbillies bookstore, with lodge rooms available. I think the nerves increased with every step we...More

I first visited the Mountain Cafe Co. and attached book shop in about 1999 and it was a firm favourite for years. Quirky bookshop packed to the gunnels with interesting stuff, huge amount of choice cake-wise and was able to while away the hours drinking...More

If you are in Gairloch, this place is a must visit. Not only do they serve delicious cakes (and more) plus excellent coffee, but the associated bookshop has the best esoteric collection around. On my regular visits in Wester Ross, this is always on my...More
