Sitting on the banks of the Holy Loch, uniquely positioned in all-day sunlight with vast, stunning views of mountains, forests, sea and sky, The Shore Cafe was once a Post Office in need of some serious TLC.
The new owner took a leap of faith one day in the summer of 2019, and set out to sell up in Glasgow and move closer to family on the coast. Their whim came to fruition in February 2020 when the sale of the old Post Office finally went through and the scale of the renovation ahead became clear. Just weeks in, and with the builders due to arrive, the first UK-wide lockdown was announced and uncertainty loomed large.
Once restrictions were lightened in the summer, the renovation could finally begin. Long days and nights followed and The Shore Cafe started to take shape. The doors opened on a glorious September weekend until two days before a new baby arrived in November. Plans were hatched for returning in the festive season, but sadly another full lockdown followed.
Happily The Shore Cafe opened its doors when restrictions lifted in April 2021, and the business continues to go from strength to strength with each passing year.
