We stopped off here for afternoon tea. Hugely welcoming with friendly staff and reasonably priced fare. We didn't try the pies but will do next time we stop off with the cracking smells coming from the kitchen!

It was the best night in Scotland for us, definitely! We are so delighted that it's hard to find adequate words to express our emotions! The room was great, retro, with amazing old bed, wooden dresser, dressing table, fantastic and comfortable armchair and clean bathroom. It was really cosy! The owners were great! It was not a problem for them...

Great pies. I had the hand dived scallop and black pudding pie! Delicious! Kids had macaroni pie, salmon tart, and the wife had a cheese and onion pie, all with potatoes wedges. Everybody enjoyed their lunch, and was priced reasonably. Puddings were very good too, but we only had 2 between us as we were too full.

These were the best pies ever! We had the Mutton and the Thai Chicken pies and they were great. We both loved the Thai chicken one and would recommend it if you are a curry fan. It's such a cute little place to have a bite to eat, especially after a nice hike. The staff are very helpful and friendly!

Always stay at the Glenview. Recently altered there approach by opening the SkyePie cafe. As Simon is a renowned chef these are no ordinary pies - we had mutton with aharissa and apricot as well as scallops with black pudding which were more than just good but the best pies perhaps anywhere in the UK! The sides are also great...

I stopped off with some friends at the beginning of July whilst touring the North of Skye. The cafe was recommended to me by a relative and we were not disappointed. The owners and staff offer the complete experience - surroundings, food and service were all first class. A fantastic selection of home-made pies and bakery awaits you and can...

Retro heaven. Small compact rooms with great attention to detail on all things retro. Fresh coffee and chocolate tea cakes on the hospitality tray very welcome. Lovely owners who are very knowledgeable on places to visit and things to do. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the smells wafting around mouth watering. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and very much hope...

It’s not often that my husband and I have a day off together, last Wednesday we made the journey up to the Totternish Peninsula to Culnacnoc near Staffin to the Glenview Pie Cafe. We had been fortunate enough to win a voucher at a Fairtrade Ceilidh held in April, we were keen to taste those pies! The pie cafe is...
