Lovely little cafe to stop for a coffee and a bite to eat. I had a toastie all served with salad but the coffee was gorgeous. Lovely view with a whiteboard with all recent sightings of golden eagles etc

My wife and I visited this cafe and had excellent coffee and cake. The views over the loch to the Bla Bheinn mountain were tremendous. Well worth a visit if in the area.

Way down the road to Elgol, you'll go past the Blue Shed, only don't go past, go in, you won't regret it, good hospitality, good food at good prices. Will definitely go back next time I'm down that way.

Beautiful place for a coffee. Great views to the Blaven (black cuillin range). Recommending the espresso and the ginger tart.
