Although somewhat difficult to get to, the Red Roof Cafe is worth the effort. The phrase "off the beaten track" is often thrown around but definitely fits the description here. The cafe is a very old building that has been refurbished and welcomes guests with a warm cosy interior.
The people were warm and friendly and plenty of locals dropped in to have a chat and a coffee giving it a wonderful embracing charm. We had their platter featuring peat smoked salmon, smoked ham and crowdie cheese served with self made onion bagels and oat crackers and greens sourced from a farmer up the road. For those who love their greens, the greens are an incredible collection of flavours. The unassuming variety hid an array of flavours ranging from aniseed. mustard, horse radish, fennel to a fiery pepper. I was even given an extra bag to take away with me when I commented on it.
The cafe sits in a pleasant valley and eating outdoors would have capped the day were it not for our visit being in the depth of winter. I totally recommend it as part of any exploration of that part of the island.
