Stopped her for coffee and a cake. Perfect location, with stunning views. The homemade cakes were delicious, and the staff friendly. Only downside was the table was slightly 'sticky'.

This cafe is in a stunning location with views over Torrin, Loch Slapin and the mighty Blaven Mountain in the Black Cuillin. The homemade cakes and freshly prepared coffee are both excellent. Only thing to watch out for is that it's not always open!
