The building has been sympathetically restored. It's bright and airy and the art is nicely displayed throughout. The cafe has a limited but decent range of drinks and cakes. We liked the art and the cafe so much we went 2 days in a row!

This gallery is housed in a beautiful old dressing building. Has a good range of art, ornaments, jewellery and scarves etc. Coffee and cake too. Well worth a stop on the way up the west coast road!

We visited recently as we had been told that they serve the best coffee on the island. This was not an exaggeration! Tea/coffee was lovely and the home baking superb. Only criticism was that they did not do any sandwiches or snacks so we had...More
