Growing organically since 1983, Pillars of Hercules is a popular vegetarian cafe and farm shop. If you're in the Falkland area it's well worth a visit.
Cafe & Bistro
Our organic cafe serves delicious vegetarian meals and snacks. Check out our seasonally opening evening bistro for a treat
Packed full with fresh organic fruit and vegetable, wholefoods, chilled products, freshly baked bread, eggs, wine, beer household goods.
Starting with 2 acres and one polytunnel we now manage a wide range of organic fruit & veg, laying hens, orchards and woodland on 15 acres.
Get away from all this computer nonsense. Pitch a tent, light a fire and throw a frisbee with the kids. Just a basic site with plenty enough space to play.
How can you get a selection of organic vegetables delivered to your door each week by our (usually) cheery Ralph for just £14 (by Standing order)? Live in Fife? Excellent-you're sorted!
The Home Guard used to shelter here while manning checkpoints during the war. Happily, now a place you can stay in to shelter from less serious threats.
Shop is open to 6pm each evening. Closed Christmas day, Boxing day and New years day.
Walk: Lovely woodland walks and footpaths from Falkland Estate duckpond through the Estate grounds. Excellent path from Strathmiglo village hall along the Cotton road.
Cycle: As for walking plus we are on the National cycle route 1 which connects Dover to Shetland, but more common starting points are Edinburgh and St Andrews.
Bus: Stagecoach provide service 64A stopping outside the farm. Put 'pillars of hercules' into the destination on TravelineScotland website for times.
Car: You will need a car, insurance, driving licence and some fuel but this is still the most usual way to get here. If you have an electric vehicle then you can charge up here for free at our charging point. If you don't, Co-wheels Car Club can help.
Motorbike: Strangely popular way to get to the Pillars. Not so much a mode of transport; more a way of life. Park up and admire each other's shiny chromework.
