The Walkers’ Cafe

The Clay Works is 200 yards from the Great Glen Way, about 9 miles from Invermoriston and 5 miles from Drumnadrochit at about 800 feet above Loch Ness. 


The Cafe, where customers sit out in the garden or at tables in the gallery, is very small, and it can get quite busy in the summer months.


We serve a range of teas, excellent coffee made in individual expresso machines, hot chocolate and the Pellegrino range of fruit drinks. The cakes by Marion Stewart have become renowned.
