While this family-run tearoom and shop, housed in a traditional cottage, may be modest in scale, its setting overlooking the River Lyon deep within one of Scotland's most alluring glens is one of majestic and unforgettable natural beauty. Visitors arrive at this remote hideaway already smiling from the journey – be it by car, bicycle or on foot, along the glen road or over the high-altitude Ben Lawers route (extremely ill-advised during winter). It's the perfect preparation for the small menu of fresh soups and sandwiches and the enticing home-made bakes and cakes – from shortbread and moist fruit and nut cakes to imaginative flapjacks and cream scones that are as memorable as the location – especially if the weather permits al fresco dining. Various teas are on offer as well as great coffee made just down the road by Glen Lyon Coffee Roasters. The shop offers the basic, but possibly vital, essentials, as well as serving as the local visitor info centre, and the Bridge of Balgie Post Office.
