Drop In Lunches
We offer a lunch service to elderly and frail residents in the Drumnadrochit, Cannich, Strathglass, Kiltarlity and Beauly area. Lunches are freshly cooked on a daily basis. Individuals can drop into the centre between 12.30pm and 1.30pm weekdays to enjoy a nutritious 2 or 3 course meal. This can be short or long term. If using the service we require you to simply book your attendance in advance to ensure we have spaces available.
