This was a great little spot for lunch. The food was great and the staff in the visitors center were very helpful. They gave us a map of the local area and were able to help us find some great places to see.

Stopped for lunch in the sun here, and was pleasantly surprised by the great quality - the smoked salmon was especially tasty. Would definitely eat here again.

Good coffee stop convenient to Museum and main sites. Attractive cafe but service incredibly pedestrian. And why don't they tell you in advance that the downstairs seats have no WiFi?!

Kilmartin Museum Cafe is open every day from 10 - 5 from March to end October and 11 - 4 during November and December. We close from Christmas until the beginning of March each year. The cafe provides lunches, cakes, teas and coffees. Wherever possible, our delicious and wholesome food is prepared on the premises and cooked to order. We cater for special diets on request and there are always vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options on offer. The cafe is on two levels, upstairs in the barn and downstairs in the green oak conservatory with views across Kilmartin Glen. We have wi-fi and daily papers so you can always keep in touch.
