We are a coffee shop with a unique difference in an oasis of good food, warmth, Art and cheeriness.

We especially invite weary cyclists and walkers experiencing the Hebridean Way

When Debbie and Paul first met, they started out together by back-packing in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.  Then, moved to Balallan on the Isle of Lewis in 2003, and in 2005 took to the highroad in a luxury motorhome.  Debbie painted every day coming out with paintings shortlisted for competitions entering many others. 

Debbie is a Professional Associate Member of the Society for All Artists and has been published numerously in their magazine.  She takes on Pet Portrait Commisions.  Also, has a passion for Teaching Art.

We serve all day, light snacks including travellers' special, and tasteful homebaking by Debbie in an eclectic atmosphere of wonderful exclusive paintings, prints, original, published cards and hand-made crafts by Debbie Cullis and Paul Smith.
