A modern purpose built tinhouse cafe on the south-west shore of Loch Harport on the outskirts of the village of Carbost in the beautiful Isle of Skye. Both inside and out there’s fantastic views across the loch located on the Minginish peninsula.

There’s a fantastic selection of homemade cakes and tray-bakes with a great gluten free and vegan range too. You’ll find everything from chocolate orange (vg), lime and coconut (gf, vg), citrus drizzle, dark chocolate rocky road and fruit and seed flapjack. Our favourite was the traditional Scottish Cranachan slice made with fresh raspberries, cream, oats and whiskey and is known as the ‘uncontested king of Scottish dessert’.

If looking for something savoury there’s a varied menu with everything from filled baps with local delicacies, fresh toasties, homemade soup, veggie/full english, burgers, fish and chips.

With plenty of seating both inside and out it’s ideal for large cycling groups (no advanced bookings), however note that during the summer months as the cafe is located on the road leading to the Fairy Glen it can sometimes get a little busy.
