The best cappuccino in the area! Very attentive staff and the coffee is made to perfection. They also have good sandwiches if you need a light bite to eat.

We stopped here for lunch and lingered over it in order to take in the stunning and breathtaking views over the bay with the mountains of Wester Ross behind. Their selection of home made soups and well filled sandwiches and rolls was very tempting and quite satisfying. This place is well worth a lunch visit, even if only for the... More

We visited the Watermill cafe three times during our recent trip to Skye and it was great every time. Located as the name suggests, next to a river and the Skye Serpentarium, this tiny cafe and gift shop is a little gem. They have a selection of homemade cakes (the Rocky Road Cheesecake being particularly excellent) and pleasant staff serving... More

Went for coffee and scones at lunch time and were very pleased with them and would go back, and although they were good value there was no price list visible to assist us in making a fully informed choice. We also returned the next day for soup and a sandwich which again were very acceptable and good value and we... More

We were in need of refreshments and saw the sign for 'The Watermill' so popped in. Wonderful little place. A Latte and a pot of tea were just what was needed. Catherine the owner came and greeted us and stayed for a chat. Gave us a couple of free Isle of Skye maps which became invaluble. Popped back in the... More

This is a small café, but serves very good home made soups and cakes, is very clean and staff friendly, a warm welcome is given to all. Not to be missed. Not been able to visit this year, but understand the above still applies, the owner would not allow standards to drop.
