  • Returned after many years absent to find the whole place so alive. Glad to see its history being preserved in the museum. Very nice staff and had a nice snack in the tea room. Hot rolls at reasonable prices {link sausage one was just perfect ]. Again staff were attentive and friendly .Highly recommended. Visited 10/06/2016.
  • Museum 'reopened' on 1 April 2016. A wonderful experience and lovely tearoom in Scotland's highest village. A must to visit.
  • Food in cafe wasn't great at all. Salad was very poor. £5.50 and served in a small soup bowl.
  • Interesting and friendly place
  • Very interesting and a must visit in the area! Nice tea room as well!
