Guardian G2 Recommendation brings Franz Ferdinand in!!!

An article in the Guardian G2 supplement praising the coffee shop has had the surprise benefit of bringing renowned Scots rockers Franz Ferdinand for a visit

The Kiln Room Coffee Shop was recently placed in the top 30 best roadside stops in the whole of the UK, the article which can be found here:,,2161818,00.html ranked the Coffee Shop as number one (although this was because we were the furthest north!!!) and has made an immediate impact on the number of people coming in to visit us.

However little could prepare us for the arrival of the internationally known rock band Franz Ferdinand who stopped in during their mini tour of Scotland. The guys spent an hour in the coffee shop and showroom before heading down to the farm to visit the Highland cows there.  The visit was reported in the local paper to the headline of "Caramel Shortbread to 'Take Out', thanks" a picture of the band with my son Daniel is also on the Badenoch and Strathspey heralds website:  

The bands visit and the Guardian recommendation have really made the end of this season something to remember!
