Attractive restaurant at a famous museum

The Penlee House Museum Restaurant is an attractive venue for coffee or lunch, clean, good food and friendly staff and right inside the famous Penlee Museum. There are also tables outside with views of the garden. Also on site is a well-stocked gift shop.

House of Bruar, Blair Atholl

A food and clothing retail complex just off the A9 at Blair Atholl, it is muzac-free throughout. The eating areas can be clattery if busy. You can have a pleasant walk up the burn to the Falls of Bruar just behind.

Pottery Craft and Coffee Shop, Laggan

A welcome stop-off point in the Highland countryside on the road between Fort William and the A9. High end crafts and very good home baking. A lovely courtyard to sit in in good weather. There's also a bunkhouse but it's for groups or families only.

'Delicious' Habitat Cafe, Aberfeldy

Cafe and food shop selling local, ethical and organic produce. No muzac by design and very good food. The apple strudel we bought for our supper was amazing.

No music here any more thanks to Pipedown Edinburgh's efforts, neither in the bookshop itself nor in the Costa cafe at the back.

Vane Farm Nature Centre

An RSPB reserve with several hides along the shore of Loch Leven and woodland walks on the hill above the centre.

There's a shop downstairs and a quiet cafe above with telescopes by the windows to look at the wildlife on the shore and the Loch. Good coffee and unusually good cafe food. The chef has removed speakers and has resisted attempts to introduce background music.

A good place to stop off for rest and refreshment on the drive north to Perth and the Highlands.

Berwick St James Farm Shop

Marilyn runs a small but very friendly farm shop in Wiltshire village selling locally sourced meat, eggs and vegetables plus delicious home-made sausages, pies, cakes, jams and wonderful home-baked bread (available Saturday mornings only). The pigs are reared by her husband so could not be more local. There is also a small café area. Closed Mondays, open Tuesday to Sunday 9.30-5 (approximately.)

Lakeland, Edinburgh

This is part of a large chain of shops selling kitchenware, items for the home and garden, foodstuffs and gifts. It is a wonderful place to browse and the Edinburgh branch is blissfully musac-free.
