Ella’s Cafe is in Uig on the Isle of Skye. Just off the main road and behind the petrol station Ella’s Cafe is located in a building called the Sheiling (which means ‘hut’ or a ‘collection of huts’). Don’t be fooled by it’s run down appearance, the cafe inside is well worth a visit for lunch or a light bite!
As you enter the Sheiling, the cafe itself is on the right of the entrance. To the left is a shop.
The shop to the left when you enter is a real treasure trove! Here you can find local craft items, old books, clothing and even furniture. If you’re looking for a gift, chances are you can find something here!
Turn right after entering the Sheiling and you will be facing Ella’s Cafe. You will receive a warm welcome – especially on cold days when the stove heats up the seating area!
