Welcome to our new Member (Sept 23). What a fabulous addition to Helmsdale where Donna and her team are creating a wonderful food destination in this pretty highland village on the North Coast 500. She has brought the historic white-washed building back to life, a welcoming haunt for locals and travellers alike, brimming with great food and warm hospitality.
The deli counter is filled with cheese, charcuterie and home made delicatessen to eat-in or takeaway. The café is a hub of activity with artisan coffees and teas available, home bakes and food served throughout the day. Daytime opening hours for the meantime but watch their facebook link to see latest developments and menus as Othin House opens this weekend (Sept8th) with an Indy Book Festival.
Indeed the book-lined wall is an indicator of Donna’s other love – books. These will regularly feature among the seasonal events at Othin House where Donna also has a charming and vibrant event space where they will be hosting a range of fairs and special occasions, also available for hire.
From a hospitality family, Donna is no stranger to what running an establishment entails and is eager to put Helmsdale on the map. A trained cook, she has also taken on charcuterie and other additional skills to increase her repertoire, offering mouth-watering menus, colourful flavours and produce on sale. We wish them every success. Watch this space for more photos soon
