One of my favourite restaurants and gift shops. About 15 miles from Bonar Bridge this is situated beside the Loch in Lairg. There is a Garage nearby so a handy place to top up.

We stopped here on a cold and wet afternoon whilst travelling. What a treat, a lovely roaring fire, great view over the lake, well laid out cafe, friendly welcome and good food. Definitely worth a stop. They also have a nice gift shop.

Stopped here for early lunch on our way to Inverness. Set next to the water, wonderful views in a small and comfortable setting. Great service, but the food was even better. Breakfast sandwich for the girls, halloumi and red pepper panini for the husband. Wow!
