Like many of you during lockdown I found time to implement a long overdue clear out of cupboards and drawers. It was then that I found this little flyer advertising Pitblae Cottage Tearoom. I have no idea of the vintage but I must have picked up it up in the late 1980s whilst exploring Perthshire after having moved from Ayrshire to Invergowrie in 1987. This little gem of a cottage tearoom has had many incarnations since that time including the wonderful “Culdees” when it was run by Heather and Kenny McVean, through to the delightful “Berryfields” run by Hazel Gordon, then Karen and Davy and finally Cath. Great memories for the villagers for all those who delighted in the traditional warmth and hospitality it offered. The life of the little cottage is about to enter its next incarnation as a hairdressing establishment and all best wishes go to Silver Lining Hair Studio.
