The Glenlyon Tearoom at Bridge Of Balgie, near Aberfeldy, Perthshire (01887 866221)
What makes it so special?
It's a great wee place I found when I was out on the bike. From Loch Tay you have a killer three-mile climb, one of the best in Scotland, over the Ben Lawers road. That's followed by a four-mile descent down a singletrack road through moorland with sheep all over the place. So three miles up, four miles down, and then you come to a tiny little humpback bridge and this fantastic tearoom.
