Visited November 2016 as this was the first time I visited Luss. Full of excitement looking for a place to eat and drink. We entered Purdie's whereupon I stumbled on something that I did not recognise and I thought it was one of the toys from the shop.Upon picking it up I said to the owner I" think this has... More

I was not aware the family run cafe here would house a dog so close to the food, with its chewy toys strewn across the floor upon entry, to which my guest almost twisted an ankle due to standing on one these. A surprise and just not what I expected in a catering establishment. The dog was in a cage... More

We are sorry to hear you did not like your visit to our cafe. We are a dog friendly cafe and lots of tourists and locals alike use this facility. I do however see by your message that not all customers like dogs within the cafe and i shall take this on board. I am sorry to hear the puppy... More

The location is great and staff are helpful, not so sure about the gluten free options. Proprietor likes dogs.

Lovely little cafe, nice view of the loch. I would recommend the coffee cake, the crafts on sale were beautiful.

We were looking for somewhere for a short break and coffee on our way south from Fort William and came across Purdie's at about the right time of the morning more or less by chance. It proved to be ideal. There was plenty of parking and It was quieter than the 'facilities' at the other end of the car park.... More

Fantastic little spot that we stopped at while traveling through Loch Lomond area. Great food (best fish and chips we had during our whole UK stay), nice gift area, friendly staff. Highly recommended!

Popped in for some lunch on a wee day trip to Luss. Staff were lovely and very friendly. Meal was good and reasonable priced considering it's a "touristy" place to visit. Only downside was that the toilets were not the cleanest but that didn't take away from our lovely meal.

Visiting the Lock around lunchtime and wanted somewhere accessible and uncomplicated, Purdie's was that. There isn't a long menu but a good choice ranging from soup and sandwiches to fish and chips, which look good, although didn't have that. The staff were super and the dog well behaved. We enjoyed our lunch.

A lovely place to stop for a coffee and cake or a full meal. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is tasty and good value for money. Is so nice to find somewhere that we can go to when out for a walk with the dog, and not have to leave him in the car. There is... More

I was in Luss with friends this week and we went into the cafe for a life lunch. Carrie's is a lovely rustic cafe with excellent food and service. Staff are friendly and welcoming both to people and dogs. My friend has a dog and they had been there before and recommended it highly. The owner has an 8 month... More

Our cafe prides itself in its fresh homemade cakes and scones with specialty coffees and teas. We are open all year except January. We sell homemade bloomer bread sandwiches and fresh homemade soups. In the summer months we double the choice of cakes and food ranging from fish and chips all the way to venison. We have our own gift shop selling some unusual gifts. We provide take away coffee or meals to eat by the beach on the banks of Loch Lomond. Our toilets are easily accessible and wheelchair friendly and available to patrons only. We are dog friendly and even have our own resident dog named Toby.
