Stopped here for a coffee when out for a run in the car. We both had flat white coffee’s which were really good, we also had two tray bakes which were so tasty. Good service and a nice place for a coffee stop.

Stopped off here for soup, scones and coffee’s again this year and would thoroughly recommend it. Bought a painting this year so we can remember our Highland holiday during the winter. Will be back again next year. Great service from the staff.

Having not been in B-of-G for a couple of years, the existence of 1896 was met with some anticipation. And, wow, what a superb addition to the area. Interesting and bright gallery upstairs with worthwhile exhibits. However, the consumable exhibits downstairs were if greater interest...More

We cycled there and locked our bikes to the railings. There are bike racks just down the road in front of the Boat inn by the railway station.

We are an art gallery specializing in the the stunning Scottish landscape. Our artists live and work in Scotland and share their passion of its rugged beauty. Alongside the artists is James Gordon landscape photography who is co-owner with his wife Mairi. The gallery is on 2 floors. Disabled access is good for ground floor. We also have a selection of Locally made crafts & jewelry, gifts and cards too. We did have a coffee shop but our love of all things arty has squeezed it out.
