History of the Blue Shed.
How to find us.
When visiting the Isle of Skye, why not take time for a visit to Torrin, home of the Blue Shed Cafe? Six miles out of Broadford, on the road to Elgol, we serve delicious home-baking, hot toasted and cold -filled sandwiches, home-made soup and hot and cold drinks. Nestling near the head of Loch Slapin, a narrow sea loch in South-West Skye, the cafe overlooks part of the world famous Cuillin mountain range, including Blaven [Bla Bheinn].Our cafe is ideally situated to refresh hungry walkers [being on the Skye Trail] and those simply wishing to linger a while and take in the stunning scenery. We also sell a selection of gifts, cards, maps and framed photographs to remind you of your stay on Skye.
The Blue Shed Cafe began its life as a community shop in the picturesque crofting community of Torrin, funded by the John Muir Trust, Highland Council and HIghlands and Islands Enterprise. The Torrin management committee opened 'Am Bothan' [Gaelic for small hut or shed] in 2001.
It was renamed The Blue Shed Cafe in 2005 and ran successfully as a cafe/shop for 3 years providing the local population and visitors with essential groceries, drinks, cakes and sandwiches in a great setting, overloking Loch Slapin and Blaven mountain.
The proprietors, Justine & Antony Davies, aim to continue to build on this success, providing delicious home-baked food, hot and cold drinks, reviving soups and tasty filled roll / hot toasties. Usually open from 10:30 - 17:00 and 12:00 - 17:00 on Sundays [but closed Tuesdays and occasional other days - see below for details of any closures], you will often find us still open after hours, enjoying the company of visitors and the excellent scenery! We look forward to meeting you all!We apologise but we cannot accept coaches and politely request that large groups [8+] give us a call beforehand to check that we can accomodate them. Please note that we stop serving hot food and sandwiches after 3:30 p.m. Thank you. The cafe will be open on the following days and times:Saturday - Sunday - Monday, from 20th July , between the hours of 10:30 - 17:00 hours on each day. If it becomes possible to open for more days then we will endeavour to make it happen. The menu focus will be on home baking / drinks / home-made soup. If we can expand our menu / days of opening we will, however this will depend upon staffing levels. We look forward to meeting you all!.
