Beautiful surroundings but don't rely on the cafe for a good experience. Service was slow, food didn't arrive together, dried up and over priced. A real shame.

Ideal for all ages. Trailers available for towing little people. Trails through forest. Brake pad cycle shop and hire. Booking advisable if you have not your own. Walks for those less energetic. Four footed friends welcome but must be under control. Kirroughtree centre for refreshments.
