On Monday 25th July 2016 Cameron’s cafe will re-open its doors to the public. Cameron’s cafe is named after Donald Cameron the joiner who built it.
Take the Scenic Chair from the gondola top station, here you’ll be able to access Cameron’s cafe and the Hidden Valley. The valley is also known as Coire nan Each (eck) or Coire of the Horses, it’s a gem of a hidden coire at the end of the Great Glen Chair. We’re unsure why it’s called the Coire of the Horses, it’s possible that there were wild horses in the area after the end of the last Ice Age. It may also have been an area that the ghillies ponies pastured when they were not working bringing in the deer. Coire nan Each and the corrie to your left as you look up the hill are certainly very popular with Red deer as feeding areas.
Cameron’s cafe will be open in conjunction with the operating times of the Great Glen Scenic Chair. Buy a takeaway tea or coffee as well as sample some of the tasty home baking, filled rolls or freshly prepared soup. There will be some outdoor seating available to have your picnic and relax to take in the stunning views. A note to bear in mind is as this is only a wee cafe, there are no toilet facilities, the nearest are at the gondola top station.
