The Sinclair family have created a wonderful destination here on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Originally – and still is – a berry farm, their fabulous produce takes you through the seasons from their PYO berries, apple orchards to pumpkins later in the year. Their apples are available as delicious single variety juice and their berries are also made into delicious homemade jams onsite. You can even book on a jam making course!
Their beautiful café has just had a marvellous makeover and has terrific views over the Forth. A pleasant short drive from the city centre, Craigie’s serves hot meals and light dishes, salads, terrines, soups and home baking.
They pride themselves in sourcing as much Scottish as possible and their cheese counter is pure Scottish and featured on Scottish Cheese Trail. Alongside their cafe they also have a superb food hall stocking fruit and vegetables, locally sourced meats, fish and cheeses and provisions such as Brodies teas and coffees, specialty shortbreads, Cairn O’Mhor wines and Demijohn refills. Great supporters of local and home-grown produce and a super place to eat. 2009 Winners of the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Award for Food, the Sinclair family have been local food heroes for many years.
There are walks, animals and exploits to entertain the children. They have a wonderful range of gifts and cards for all ages – and also stock our book “Meadows: The Swedish Farmer & The Scottish Cook”.
Well worth a visit… again and again.
