Watermill & Tea Rooms – Blair Atholl




In this 17th century watermill they still grind their own flour to bake all the bread and cakes – even the wholemeal Victoria Sponge is light – honest!

Fancy a Cuppa? Book CoverFancy a Cuppa?

Fancy a Cuppa? reviews 50 places across the UK for a good cup of tea or coffee and a nice piece of cake, a scone or other local delicacy.  This is not a ’50 best’ tea rooms or cafes guide. Rather it includes places that have a story to tell.

Read the full description of this book on the books page and if you like what you see you can buy it from there too.


The Victoria Sponge is special (how do they make it wholemeal but light?).  But all the cakes and scones are just as good.  And the savoury food is top quality too.  Try a Lockerbie cheese roll or the Dunkeld smoked salmon.  Or just have a bowl of soup with bread. All the bread is baked on the premises (wholemeal, poppy seed, olive bread, sundried tomato bread) and if you want a sandwich with your favourite bread, they’ll usually make it up for you. Everything we have ever eaten there has been delicious.
