Come and eat great homemade food in our friendly country café or grab a bite to go for that outdoor experience. Be tempted by a range of distinctive gifts with a Scottish twist and amble at leisure in our beautiful 80 acres of deciduous woodland. Conveniently located at the crossing of the main Edinburgh-Biggar and Glasgow-Borders cross country routes the BIG RED BARN looks forward to welcoming you with foods, goods and woods.


Whether you fancy some hearty home-made food before or after exploring in the woods, or something To Go you will be well catered for at this friendly spot in the heart of the countryside.We serve breakfast, lunch and tea in the cafe and in our Larch Room in the garden. We have taken great care in selecting our coffees and teas and in our variety of delicious cakes made both here and by our friends at Garvald West Linton Bakery just up the road.  Food to suit all special dietary requirements is available too!


Seek out a present for someone special or treat yourself from our original selection of gifts, sourced from some talented Scottish producers.


Safe off-road parking, easy wheelchair access, immaculate restrooms, a stunning location and a relaxing experience await in this contemporary conversion of an old cow barn.


Stop by any time from 10.00am to 5.00pm every day of the week.
