The Tea Garden

The Tea Garden is perfectly located at the southern end of the circular walk route, just a few minutes away from the stunning Gylen Castle. We serve hearty homemade soups, stews, salads and a selection of delicious cakes to accompany fairtrade teas and coffees to energise you on a walk round this amazing island.

As much as possible, all the eggs in all of our cakes, tarts, flans and specials come from the island, where they are as free to roam as we are, otherwise our eggs come from Balvicar Farm on Seil island. You can see the island from the Byre window...feel free to give them a wee wave!

Opening times

The Tea Garden is open from the start of the Scottish Easter Holidays (usually the first weekend in April) til the end of September, Thursday to Monday, from 11am until 4pm. (Please note we are CLOSED TUESDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS)

Groups Welcome (But please let us know!)

We regularly welcome larger groups of all shapes and sizes from geology students to rambling nurses. A wee bit of advance notice helps greatly and lets us get prepared, so please contact us and let us know you’re coming! 07951 964 231
