Ella’s Cafe

Expect Local Produce Prepared With Love At Ella's Cafe

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

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!
