Turned up on a cold windy day and received service with a smile as well as a lovely coffee. Cake selection looked good and there was a great friendly atmosphere

Stopped here for lunch and the soup and sandwiches were excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful and had a great chat with locals. It's out of the way but a little gem

We visited Nanny's for lunch in October 2016 when we were touring the west coast. It's and absolute must if you're in the area. I've previously been here when it was the original grey hut. The food was great then and it hasn't changed since. I love the Nanny's Special - Smoked hot and cold Salmon on Cream cheese and... More

We visited Nanny's 3 times while on holiday in Scotland. Good coffee, good cake and, this morning, really good porridge for breakfast. It came with honey and cream, and I succumbed to temptation and added some cream, it was heavenly. Walked 5 miles after so didn't feel too guilty. Looking forward to going back next year.

I had been waiting 9 months to visit Nanny's and I was not disappointed. The service was really good, the cafe was so very clean and it was in a wonderful location. The food is lovely.

I arrived in a group of 5 cyclists - we had tackled the Bealach Na Ba earlier in the day and were ready for some cake. Between us we ordered coffee cake, lemon drizzle, and the most delicious carrot cake. It was sublime. All the cakes were homemade. The coffee was rich and smooth. the views beautiful. It was all...
